Posted on: December 17th, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

The Town of Olive is set to launch a Local Flood Analy­sis in 2015. The Town select­ed con­sult­ing firm Woidt Engi­neer­ing and its sub­con­trac­tor Atkins Glob­al to pro­vide engi­neer­ing and plan­ning ser­vices. The analy­sis will focus on actions that reduce flood dam­ages in the ham­lets of Boiceville and West Shokan. Boiceville is sit­u­at­ed on Route 28 along the Eso­pus Creek. West Shokan is locat­ed near the con­flu­ence of the Bushkill with the Ashokan Reser­voir. The Town has applied to AWSMP for fund­ing to cov­er full project costs. Once approved and con­tract­ed, the project will begin with field sur­vey and data col­lec­tion. Project kick-off meet­ings to gath­er pub­lic input are antic­i­pat­ed for spring.
