Olive Residents: Flooding Problems?

Posted on: April 16th, 2015 by Brent Gotsch

If you are a res­i­dent of the Town of Olive and want to either view or add to flood maps you are wel­come to stop by the AWSMP office between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Mon­day through Fri­day.  Recent­ly, the Town of Olive Town Board heard a pre­sen­ta­tion from Woidt Engi­neer­ing and Con­sult­ing on the Local Flood Analy­sis (LFA) process and how it will ben­e­fit the Town. Part of the pre­sen­ta­tion focused on Woidt’s desire to learn more from Olive res­i­dents about haz­ardous flood areas. Woidt cre­at­ed a set of maps where res­i­dents can mark  loca­tions of con­cern or known flood­ing and ero­sion haz­ards. Woidt will use the infor­ma­tion to exam­ine flood­ing solu­tions.  The maps are post­ed at the AWSMP office at 3130 State Route 28 in Shokan, NY (locat­ed between Ashokan Turf and Tim­ber and the Shokan Square plaza, across from the Cit­go gas sta­tion). The maps will be avail­able for approx­i­mate­ly three more weeks before they are returned to Woidt. For more infor­ma­tion on the LFA process in Olive please vis­it our office or view the Town of Olive web­site.
