Neighborhood meetings held in March and April, 2023
Last year, the City of New Rochelle engaged consultants for a Citywide Drainage Study to analyze issues in the watershed districts located throughout New Rochelle. A total of six drainage basin areas were reviewed: Burling Brook, Hutchinson, Pinebrook, Sheldrake River, Shoreline, and Stephenson Brook. Input was solicited from property owners who had experienced severe flooding and this information was compiled along with City data and hydrologic analyses to identify potential drainage improvements that would be included in a final report.
At a series of neighborhood meetings held in March and April, the City’s consultant Brooker Engineering gave an overview of the process to date for each of the six watersheds.
The links below contain the PowerPoint presentations for each watershed.
The deadline to provide commentary has been extended to May 3 at 11:59 pm.
In July 2022, the City Council unanimously approved contracts with five Drainage subconsultants to perform a Citywide Drainage Study that will analyze issues in the watershed districts located throughout New Rochelle. To more fully identify drainage problem locations, the City has solicited input from property owners who have experienced severe flooding. The deadline for submitting information was September 15, 2022. A total of six drainage basin areas are being reviewed: Burling Brook, Hutchinson, Pinebrook, Sheldrake River, Shoreline, and Stephenson Brook. The contractor will accomplish a series of tasks beginning with a review of City data and performing hydrologic analyses, followed by development of recommendations for drainage improvements and the creation of a final report in 2023.
