Historical Note

The Connecticut River Flood Control Compact was signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on June 6, 1953, having been previously authorized by the state legislatures of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. The passage of the compact established the Connecticut River Valley Flood Control Commission. On September 8, 1953, the commissioners signed the compact on behalf of the member states. The Commission consists of twelve members with each member state having three commissioners. By the provisions of the compact the Commission must elect a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Clerk.

The Commission from 1953 to 1982 employed an Executive Director and Secretary. Philip Shutler, Director 1953-1968, was the first director. Shutler, formerly the Vermont Commissioner of Water Resources, remained director until his untimely death in 1968. Shutler was succeeded as director by Nathan Tufts. In 1982, following the resignation of Nathan Tufts, Commissioner 1953-1963, 1966-1968; Director 1968-1982, the positions of director and secretary were consolidated into that of Executive Secretary. Pauline Smiaroski, Secretary 1981-1982 and Executive Secretary 1982-2010, served as the Commission's only employee until her retirement. Beginning in 2010, administrative responsibilities were assumed by the Connecticut River Watershed Council of Greenfield, Massachusetts.

The compact calls for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to reimburse the State(s) of New Hampshire and Vermont fifty percent of the amount of taxes lost to their political subdivisions for the flood control dams and reservoirs at Surry Mountain, New Hampshire and Union Village, Vermont. The State of Connecticut is to reimburse the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the State(s) of New Hampshire and Vermont forty percent of the amount of taxes lost to their political subdivisions for flood control dams and reservoirs at Tully, Knightville, and Birch Hill, Massachusetts; at Surry Mountain, New Hampshire; and at Union Village, Vermont. Article V of the Compact stipulates that Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont shall also be reimbursed for any other dam or reservoir constructed by the United States in the Connecticut River Valley. The Commission determines tax losses based on the current tax rate and on the average assessed valuation for a period of five years prior to the acquisition by the Corps of Engineers. The Commission "may" use a general revaluation for the purpose of determining the amount of taxes to be reimbursed. The "may" clause caused significant controversy and the Commission has used multiple formulas to determine the amount of taxes to be reimbursed; most significantly the "Shutler Formula" and the "Curry Formula". Decisions must be ratified by two members from each state. Without unanimity among the signatories decisions are not binding. New Hampshire and Vermont have expressed frustration with the method of determining tax reimbursement but cannot implement changes without agreement from both Connecticut and Massachusetts.

The Commission has maintained multiple offices. The original office occupied from 1953-1979 was in Keene, New Hampshire. In 1979 the Commission moved to Greenfield, Massachusetts. The Commission for reasons of economy moved from Greenfield in 1992, records and office equipment were divided between South Deerfield and the offices of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management in Northampton.
