March 21, 2018: There is a Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from 1 am to 5 am Thursday (March 22nd) along the Seacoast of New Hampshire. As the timing of this flooding is near high tide, we advise you to take the necessary precautions especially if you are located in areas prone to flooding. We recommend parking in the High Street Parking lot away from the potential rising waters.
The Transfer Station will be closed Sunday April 1, 2018 in observance of the Holiday.
The Town of Hampton has identified near and long term solutions for critical process upgrades and safety needs that are necessary to protect and ensure the reliability of the Town’s Wastewater Plant. The March Warrant Article 7 has been approved for funds to address these important upgrades.
