Local Flood Analysis

In 2014, SAFARI, act­ing on behalf of the Shan­daken Town Board, began the process of “Local Flood Analy­sis” focused on the ham­lets of Phoeni­cia and Mt. Tremper. The process con­sists of two steps: 1) an engi­neer­ing analy­sis of flood con­di­tions and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of poten­tial flood mit­i­ga­tion projects artic­u­lated in a plan and 2) project design and imple­men­ta­tion.

The Town of Shan­daken tasked town engi­neer Milone & MacB­room, Inc. (MMI) with com­ple­tion of the Local Flood Analy­sis process.  The first step — an engi­neer­ing analy­sis and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of flood mit­i­ga­tion projects, is near com­ple­tion for Phoeni­cia and Mt. Tremper.

Below are links to Local Flood Analy­sis pre­sen­ta­tions and reports pro­duced by MMI.

Devel­oped by the Town of Shan­daken fol­low­ing major flood events in 2010, SAFARI works to improve resilience to flood­ing. Town of Shan­daken offi­cials led the SAFARI project through devel­op­ment of a Town of Shan­daken Flood Mit­i­ga­tion Plan adopted in July 2013. The AWSMP par­tic­i­pates in SAFARI and is pro­vid­ing finan­cial assis­tance. Agen­das and meet­ing min­utes for the SAFARI com­mit­tee are below.
