Rahway River Basin (Tidal) Flood Risk Management Feasibility

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is partnering with the New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection to carry out a Feasibility Study to identify various Coastal Storm Risk Management alternatives to address tidal flooding in the lower portion of the Rahway River Basin. The study area encompasses portions of the Cities of Linden and Rahway in Union County and the Borough of Carteret and Woodbridge Township in Middlesex County. The tidal influence on the Rahway River extends roughly five miles from the Arthur Kill into the City of Rahway.
