FLOODING STUDY INFORMATION MEETINGS
The Department of Public Works will be holding two separate meetings for residents and business owners to share their history, concerns and/or ideas regarding two flooding areas within the Town of Hampton.
For those that are interested in attending regarding the Meadow Pond/King’s Highway flooding problems, the meeting will be held on December 10th at 6pm at the Town Hall in the Selectman’s Meeting Room.This meeting will provide an introduction to the Engineers, Milone and MacBroom.

We realize that we have had a similar meeting in the past, but we feel it is best for the engineers to understand your concerns directly. We all look forward to meeting and hearing from you. For those that are not able to attend the meeting and have information that they would like to share, please feel free to email the Department of Public Works at jhale @ town.hampton.nh.us or call 603-926-3202.
FORCE MAIN CONSTRUCTION PROJECT -UPDATE 11/29/18
The Force Main Project will be continuing through the easement area from Tide Mill Road to Route 101.  A second crew will begin on December 3rd fusing pipe beginning at the Church Street Pump Station.
As construction continues along Church Street and Route 101 traffic patterns may be adjusted and detours put in place.  We ask that you pay attention to all signage, DPW personnel, Police Details and detours and most importantly PLEASE SLOW DOWN. This is for everyone’s safety, including yours.
CHURCH STREET PUMP STATION RESIDENTIAL LOT CLOSURE

The residential lot behind and around the Church Street Pump Station will be closed beginning November 3, 2018 until further notice.  This closure is needed to facilitate the construction related to the  Church Street Pump Station Force Main Replacement Project.  Those residents with resident stickers may park in empty spaces  (in areas not designated as lease spaces) within the lot directly adjacent to the pump station. As a reminder, residents are not allowed to use residential parking lots for long term storage of vehicles.  Vehicles being stored and found to interfere with snow removing activities or other town operations may be towed at the owner’s expense.  Please click here to see a map location plan.
