USACE Officials Discuss Mamaroneck and Sheldrake Rivers Report

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, in cooperation with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Westchester County, and the Village of Mamaroneck recently held a public information meeting at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck, N.Y.

Discussed was a Tentatively Selected Plan for the Mamaroneck and Sheldrake Rivers Flood Risk Management Feasibility Report.

The public information meeting featured a poster board session, comprehensive slide presentation to brief the recommended plan then concluded with a question and answer session.

The public information meeting also emphasized the importance of residents within the affected project area to submit comments relating to the Tentatively Selected Plan before comment period closes on March 30, 2016.

If approved, this study and its Tentatively Selected Plan has the potential to benefit the communities along the Mamaroneck and Sheldrake Rivers and will include 1.82 miles of channel modifications to widen, deepen and lengthen the Sheldrake and Mamaroneck Rivers, 1.64 miles of retaining wall, the removal of bridges and the construction of a diversion culvert.

The next steps for the study is to complete the Final Report and Environmental Impact Statement and submit it to the Army Corps HQ scheduled in fall 2016. Once the draft feasibility study has been approved Chiefs Report will be submitted to Congress in 2017.

Pending approval by Congress plans and specifications development is expected to commence followed by contract award and a potential ground breaking in 2018.
