Federal Project Authorized for Mamaroneck Flooding

Mamaroneck, April, 2007

 

Flood mitigation on a grand scale is finally expected to come to the Village of Mamaroneck.

After a local effort that spanned years and several Federal and local Village elected officials, the U.S. Senate passed a bill which authorizes the Mamaroneck-Sheldrake River project for construction.  

Congresswoman Nita Lowey initiated the process following the devastating floods of April 15, 2007.  The bill requires a signature from the President of the United States.

sponsored by

Mayor Tom Murphy stated “This is great news, the Village will continue to push hard to get the funding necessary to provide flood relief for our long suffering residents.”  

Multiple levels of government are involved, including the Army Corps of Engineers, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Westchester County, and the Village of Mamaroneck.  

Additional funding will need to be provided by Congress for design and construction.
