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.
