Red Hook Flood Protection Plan Still in the Works

(DNAINFO)  Nikita Venugopal | March 28, 2016 — City officials will discuss the proposed flood protection system for the neighborhood April 7.

City officials will return to Red Hook next month to offer an update on a system that could provide flood protection to the waterfront neighborhood.

The public meeting will be held Thursday, April 7 at the Miccio Center, located at 110 West 9th St. at 6:30 p.m.

In January, officials from the city’s Economic Development Corporation and the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency hosted the first meeting on the “integrated flood protection system,” planned as a series of permanent and deployable features that would reduce the risk of coastal flooding in Red Hook.

Features like a sea wall, deployable gates, pumps or raised streets have been suggested but not yet chosen.
