Southold Hosts Meeting on Hashamomuck Cove Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will be holding a public information session to discuss the Hashamomuck Cove Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibly Study.

The public information session will take place today in Southold Town Meeting Hall, Southold, NY.

The Study is focused primarily on reducing coastal storm and erosion risks to critical infrastructure, including County Road 48 which may be subject to undermining, and utilities along its corridor as well as other nearby structures.

The project delivery team (PDT) looked at various alternatives during the evaluation/alternatives analysis phase and identified alternative 2 as the recommended plan that provide solutions to reduce risk of failure or disruption along Route 48.

USACE recently announced the availability of the Draft Integrated Feasibility Report & Environmental Assessment for the Hashamomuck Cove Study.

With the passage of the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (Public Law 113-2), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been given the authority and funding to complete ongoing coastal storm damage risk reduction projects and studies in the Northeast.

The 30 day comment period ended on September 16, 2016.
