The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, released an Interim Report for the NY & NJ Harbor and Tributaries Study (HATS) on February 20, 2019. 

State and city partners that contributed input on the Interim Report include the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the City of New York.

The study team has prepared an Interim Report to present an array of alternative concepts along with preliminary costs, benefits and environmental considerations, and to identify data gaps, key uncertainties, and factors that warrant further investigation because of their potential to affect plan selection.

The concepts discussed in the Interim Report will include consideration of adaptation strategies for a range of future sea level rise projections, to ensure long-term resiliency in the face of uncertain future conditions.

According to USACE, “public and agency feedback on the Interim Report will inform the next round of investigations and modeling needed to identify a Tentatively Selected Plan for the upcoming Draft Feasibility Report and Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement.”

The study team will continue to engage with the public through public comments and public meetings, said USACE.
