On August 28, 2011, Tropical Storm Irene deposited up to a foot of rain as it traveled along the spine of Vermont’s Green Mountains. Soils were already saturated from previous rainfall and the next day creeks, streams and rivers were overwhelmed resulting in widespread flooding, erosion and damage to crops and property. This report documents the overall impacts on farms, and describes some effects of flooding on food safety, animal feed, and soil contamination.
