MIDDLETOWN, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Sheriff Shaun Golden will launch the county’s High Water Mark Initiative with the placement of the first sign at the county’s Belford Ferry Terminal, 10 Harbor Way.

The sign and others like it signify the height of the flood water during Superstorm Sandy. The signs are designed to draw attention to the potential for flooding in communities and acknowledge the location of historic flood events. The program falls under the National Flood Insurance Program

“Fourteen Monmouth County towns have joined the High Water Mark Initiative,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso. “These towns have made a commitment to improving their resiliency to future storms and in the process reduced flood insurance premiums for their residents.”

Participating towns are: Aberdeen, Atlantic Highlands, Avon, Belmar, Hazlet, Keansburg, Manasquan, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Neptune, Ocean Township, Oceanport, Rumson and Sea Bright.

High Water Mark Launch: 10 a.m., Monday, June 27 at Belford Ferry Terminal at 10 Harbor Way, Belford, NJ
