DPW To Host Public Meeting On Flooding and Drainage in Cos Cob

strickland brookA study of the Strickland Brook Drainage area has been completed along with the review of several alternatives to alleviate flooding during high intensity rain events for the Cos Cob area.

The purpose of this study and review of alternatives is to alleviate flooding and allow for emergency vehicles to travel in the public right-of-way and improve emergency response.

This project is being completed the Town of Greenwich Dept of Public Works Engineering Division, with the assistance of CDM Smith, a design consulting firm.

This area was listed as a priority on the Stormwater Capital Improvement Ranking Sheet by the Flood and Erosion Control Board.

The goal of this public information meeting is to present findings of the study to date and gain input from residents on their experience during the April 2007 rain event, as well as Tropical Storms Sandy and Irene.
