Passaic River Basin General Re-evaluation Study

Passaic River Basin General Re-evaluation Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection are partnering to carry out the Passaic River Basin General Re-evaluation Study to determine the best flood risk management alternative to help communities throughout the Passaic River Basin. The re-evaluation is one of the 15 recommendations made by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Passaic River Flood Advisory Commission.

The study was kicked off in June 2012 by the signing of a Feasibility Cost-Sharing Agreement (FCSA) between the Corps of Engineers and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. (Read more about the FCSA)

Passaic River Basin Flood Risk Management General Re-evaluation Study Preliminary Alternative Analysis Report has been completed and is now available to the public.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be hosting three public information sessions in the coming weeks with New Jersey DEP representatives in attendance to discuss the results of Phase I of the report with interested members of the public and to answer questions, get feedback and gather concerns.

Each meeting will include two open house poster board and information exchange sessions with a formal informational presentation given between each poster board session each evening.

At the poster board sessions, the public will be able to learn more about the different alternatives and the Phase 1 report from informational posters and have the opportunity to discuss them with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and New Jersey DEP personnel.

The meeting agendas are slated to be as follows:

7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. – Informational Poster Board Session and Information Exchange
7:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. – Formal Informational Presentation
8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. – Informational Poster Board Session and Information Exchange
