  • Identify gaps and collaboration opportunities
  • Prioritize current and future collective initiatives
  • Combine resources in an effort to increase impact and minimize duplication of effort
  • Foster awareness of agency programs among key stakeholders
  • Increase public awareness and understanding of flood risks

Team Activities

Maine Coastal High Water Mark Project

The team located existing High Water Marks from the 1970’s “100-year” storms in South Portland, Scarborough and Belfast.  This will aid communities in furthering their outreach and educational priorities while also meeting requirements of the FEMA High Water Mark initiative.  This will enhance existing levels of information and awareness of historic and potential future flood levels.
