SUBJECT: Implementation of Blackwells Mills and Bound Brook, New
     Jersey Flood Inundation Maps and User Interface

On Monday, March 12, 2018, the National Weather Service (NWS)
implemented the Blackwells Mills and Bound Brook, New Jersey flood
inundation map libraries on the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction
Service (AHPS) web portal.

Inundation maps provide information on the spatial extent and depth
of flood waters in the vicinity of both NWS river forecast and non-
forecast points. Users are able to display flood inundation maps for
various levels ranging from minor flooding through and/or above the
largest observed flood.

Flood inundation maps are available for the following gage/forecast

Gage                Included Municipalities

Blackwells Mills    Borough of Millstone
                        Franklin Township
                        Hillsboro Township
                        Montgomery Township

Bound Brook            Borough of Bound Brook
                        Borough of South Bound Brook
                        Franklin Township
                        Bridgewater Township

The inundation libraries are associated with United States
Geological Survey (USGS) river gages and NWS forecast points.

Flood inundation maps, combined with river observations and NWS
forecasts, enhance the communication of flood risk, provide users
with additional information to better mitigate the impacts of
flooding, and build more resilient communities.

These flood inundation maps and associated geospatial data
(shapefiles) can be accessed through the AHPS portal:

A complete list of flood inundation map locations is online at:

A Users Guide for the flood inundation map web interface is
available at:

This set of inundation maps were developed in partnership with the
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the New York and
Philadelphia Districts of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the New
Jersey U.S. Geological Survey, and made online in cooperation with
the Federal Emergency Management Agency Region II.
