New Rochelle Announces Neighborhood Meetings to Discuss Drainage Analysis Study

Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY (March 7, 2023) — City of New Rochelle residents, businesses, property owners are invited to attend a series of meetings in March and April corresponding to New Rochelle’s six watershed location.

Last year, the City of New Rochelle engaged consultants for a Citywide Drainage Study to analyze issues in the watershed districts located throughout New Rochelle. A total of six drainage basin areas were reviewed: Burling Brook, Hutchinson, Pinebrook, Sheldrake River, Shoreline, and Stephenson Brook. Input was solicited from property owners who had experienced severe flooding and this information was compiled along with City data and hydrologic analyses to identify potential drainage improvements that would be included in a final report.

At a series of neighborhood meetings planned for March and April, the City’s consultant Brooker Engineering will give an overview of the process to date for each of the six watersheds. Residents, businesses and property owners are invited to attend the meeting corresponding to their watershed location. Meetings will take place at City Hall, 515 North Avenue, in the Council Chambers at 6 pm as follows:

  • Pinebrook: Wednesday, March 22
  • Shoreline Monday, March 27
  • Hutchinson Thursday, March 30
  • Burling Brook Monday, April 3
  • Stephenson Brook Monday, April 17
  • Sheldrake Wednesday, April 19
