DEC: Livingston Manor Study to Help Advance Resiliency Project

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos yesterday announced that the state will provide up to $50,000 for a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study in the Sullivan County hamlet of Livingston Manor.

Funds will be used to undertake the Livingston Manor Flood Control Feasibility Study, DEC said in its release.

“As climate change fuels more intense and frequent storms that threaten communities and infrastructure across the state, DEC experts are on the frontlines everyday assisting local governments in planning for and advancing important flood resiliency projects,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos.

“The Livingston Manor Flood Control Feasibility Study will not only protect this community, it will also improve the natural resources in the Catskills, which are critical to the economic vitality of the region.”

A joint effort by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DEC, the town of Rockland, the Livingston Manor Flood Control Feasibility Study was originally initiated in 2009. In 2016, the study was re-envisioned to focus solely on flood control, which required additional funding. In October 2017, DEC committed to providing up to $50,000 to finalize the study.

DEC is currently working with the U.S. Army Corps to finalize a contract for the project. The study is anticipated to be completed in 2018.

Following completion of the study, the U.S. Army Corps will begin the design and construction phase of the project with federal, state and local funding.
