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.
