Borough of Rumson Local Elevation and Flood Awareness Guide

By: Mitchell Lauria

As a coastal community susceptible to tidal flooding, Rumson residents are in danger if they do not understand their local elevation, and when tidal flooding threatens their safety. The purpose of this brochure is to provide a guide to help Rumson residents understand how to monitor flood levels, find their street elevation and create email or text alerts when floods threaten their safely.

Working with the Borough of Rumson, Stevens Institute of Technology, FEMA, the USGS, and Google, Inc., this solution was created by Mitchell Lauria as part of his Boy Scout Troop 201 Eagle Project. Assistance will be provided to help any local resident with understanding this process, including help setting up custom flood alerts. By using the following three step process, Rumson residents will be able to:

  1. Quickly find the elevation of their street address.
  2. Monitor flood levels in their local Rumson neighborhood.
  3. Set alerts to notify them by text or email when flood levels threaten their safety.
