The Town of Hertford experiences flooded streets during heavy rain events, preventing access to public and private property and creating high volumes at the wastewater treatment facility due to inflow and infiltration. Conditions are attributed to stormwater infrastructure collapsed or shifted by severe flooding during hurricanes that prevents runoff from draining properly. The town will use Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds to perform necessary field data collection and performance modeling of existing watersheds, map the location and condition of stormwater assets, and develop concept plans and alternatives that will allow the town to identify and prioritize improvement options and create opinions of probable cost. Development of a stormwater master plan will serve the entire town, though modeling and improvements will focus on three sub-watersheds that drain into Jennie’s Gut, Perquimans River, and Lakers Creek. Frequent flooding around Stokes, White, and Front streets make stormwater improvements in these areas a priority. Once completed, the town will incorporate recommendations into annual capital improvement planning and pursue grant funds to implement recommendations. The majority of the town will benefit from this project.
Any project more than a couple of years old may not reflect current Board priorities.
