A series of meetings in March and April will give updates on the City’s study of six watersheds
Residents, businesses, property owners invited to attend the meeting corresponding to their watershed location
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 planned for March and April, the City’s consultant Brooker Engineering will give an overview of the process to date for each of the six watersheds. Residents, businesses and property owners are invited to attend the meeting corresponding to their watershed location. Meetings will take place at City Hall, 515 North Avenue, in the Council Chambers at 6PM as follows.
- Wednesday, March 22 Pinebrook
- Monday, March 27 Shoreline
- Thursday, March 30 Hutchinson
- Monday, April 3 Burling Brook
- Monday, April 17 Stephenson Brook
- Wednesday, April 19 Sheldrake
