Abstract : This study, which developed a catalog of bench and reference marks for several communities in Rhode Island, was conducted by the Long Range Planning Branch, Planning Directorate, New England Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the request of the Rhode Island Department of Administration, Division of Planning. The catalog encompasses the towns of Portsmouth, Newport, and Warwick. It includes a description of existing bench and reference as well as several bench marks established by the Corps of Engineers as part of this effort. The catalog will enable communities to better monitor and enforce the base flood elevation (100 years frequency) requirements contained in the National Flood insurance Program.
