Township Retains Firm to Develop Flood Mitigation Concepts

Brick Township has retained ACT Engineers, Inc. to develop flood mitigation concepts for consideration by the Township. ACT is currently reviewing and enhancing the high definition aerial topographic mapping in low lying areas of the Township and the collection of flooding information from residents to support flood mitigation strategies the Township may undertake. Information from local residents will be obtained at neighborhood meetings which will be scheduled at the end of May. Should COVID-related gathering restrictions continue to be in effect, those meetings will be scheduled via the Township’s Zoom account. The Township has provided ACT with existing stormwater infrastructure mapping which will be combined with aerial data from the USGS to establish current baseline mapping for the affected flood prone areas. Representatives from ACT Engineers have been on site collecting data and documenting flood conditions, as well as inspecting catch basis.
