Activity: Nassau County is proposing a drainage study of the villages and hamlets in the southwestern portion of Nassau County commonly referred to as the Five Towns. New York State CDBG-DR funds totaling $1,085,575 would be used for the drainage study. In addition, Nassau County would provide funding of $120,809. The villages and hamlets included in the proposed drainage study are the Villages of Cedarhurst, Lawrence, Hewlett Harbor, Hewlett Neck, Hewlett Bay Park and Woodsburgh and the Hamlets of Woodmere, Hewlett, and Inwood in the Town of Hempstead. The report produced will document and map the stormwater drainage infrastructure systems in the region, identify system limitations and provide recommendations for system improvement to mitigate stormwater and tidal flooding

Objective: The deliverables from the Five Towns drainage study will identify a collection of stormwater management system improvement projects including a configurable watershed model that compiles available GIS data, delineates drainage basins, and defines drainage parameters. Potential future design and implementation of projects will address the limitations to water flow and drainage and will reduce the flooding risk to residents, businesses, institutional facilities and emergency responders, thus strengthening the area's overall ability to recover following a major storm event.

Location: The Five Towns Drainage study includes the Villages of Cedarhurst, Lawrence, Hewlett Harbor, Hewlett Neck, Hewlett Bay Park and Woodsburgh and the Hamlets of Woodmere, Hewlett, and Inwood.
