Activity: CDBG-DR funds will be used to conduct a hydrology and hydraulics study of the Bay Park-East Rockaway community in order to develop preliminary design (Phase I) and construct feasible alternatives (Phase II) that address stormwater limitations and inform and construct the selection of best stormwater management projects for these communities in the future.

Phase I includes an H & H study which will analyze and map the stormwater drainage infrastructure system in the region, identify system limitations, and develop preliminary designs for system improvements to mitigate stormwater and tidal flooding. The study includes three parts: existing system capacity; alternative mitigation solutions; and benefit cost analysis and budget. The resulting study will identify the potential for implementing Green Infrastructure practices and will include large scale mapping, observations, evaluations, proposed improvements, feasible alternatives to address stormwater limitations, and costs and benefits of identified engineering solutions. CDBG-DR funds will be used in Phase II of the project to complete final design and construct preferred alternatives which would prevent flooding in the area by upgrading pipe capacity, preventing backflow, and other proven methods to ensure adequate stormwater management.

Objective: To address the urgent need to provide drainage Improvements to address widespread flooding resulting from Hurricane Sandy.

Location: The Target Area encompasses the Village of East Rockaway and the unincorporated hamlet of Bay Park located in the middle of the southwestern portion of the Town of Hempstead. The community is bounded by Lynbrook to the north, Oceanside to the east, barrier islands to the south and Hewlett and Hewlett Harbor to the west.
