2020-21 Progress

Given the serious climate resilience issues facing the city of North Adams and the focus of state and federal entities on flood management analysis and funding, the City and HRR are joining forces to address the aging dam, endangered bridge, and failing concrete walls along the North Branch. Together we are applying for grants to help us create a North Adams Climate Task Force and to assess the North Branch flood risks.  The work we have done along the South Branch remains relevant and important; however, at this time, we need to address the flood vulnerabilities along the North Branch.
