Shandaken-Allaben Local Flood Analysis Kick-Off

Posted on: December 7th, 2016 by Leslie_Zucker

Tues­day, Decem­ber 20 at 6:30pm at the Shan­dak­en Town Hall is the first pub­lic meet­ing to kick-off a Local Flood Analy­sis in the ham­lets of Allaben and Shan­dak­en in the Town of Shan­dak­en. Res­i­dents are encour­aged to join the Shan­dak­en Flood Com­mit­tee (aka “SAFARI”) as they begin the detailed flood analy­sis for the ham­lets. Work­ing with SAFARI, con­sult­ing firm Milone and MacB­room will car­ry out the analy­sis to: 1) deter­mine the caus­es of inten­si­fied flood­ing and eval­u­ate solu­tions; and 2) design and imple­ment projects to alle­vi­ate flood­ing and reduce haz­ards. Pub­lic input is need­ed to devel­op fea­si­ble and com­mu­ni­ty sup­port­ed projects for imple­men­ta­tion. See the Town of Shan­dak­en web­page on flood mit­i­ga­tion for more information.
