South River Flood Mitigation

There is much work being done to help alleviate flooding on the South River. This page is intended as a educational source for issues concerning the South River, and will be updated often.

There are many people and groups in town who have been working on these issues for years. A first place to check is Conway’s Open Space Committee page, as well as the private Friends of the South River page.

There is a South River Project Story Map provided by the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) which gives the history of recent events on the South River with wonderful photos and descriptions.

In 2021, GZA GeoEnvrironmental produced a report for the FRCOG as part of the regional adaptation & resilience project entitled ‘Mohawk Trails Woodland Partnership – Project Identification & Prioritization’ for both Ashfield & Conway. This reports include detailed lists of projects identified as important to alleviating threats from flooding in Conway center and beyond, and each project is prioritized in depth. You can download that report here.

You can also see here the application which was just sent in on May 5th, 2022 for this year’s Municipal Vulnerability Program grant (MVP), which encompasses many important projects aimed at reducing the potential for flooding in Conway center.
