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.
