Harrison Approves Money to Help Reduce Flooding

HARRISON, N.Y. – After receiving a suggestion to build three dams near the residential area of Louis M. Klein Middle School, the Harrison Village Board unanimously approved three separate resolutions pertaining to flooding at its meeting on Wednesday night.

The village will pay Thomas C. Merrits Land Surveyors based in Pleasantville for work, which includes a boundary survey, a topographical survey and the mapping of wetlands flags. At a cost not to exceed $21,900, the surveying company will also locate map utilities and map storm water pipes.

Additionally, the town will pay Evans Associates of Bethany, Conn., no more than $43,750 for environmental consulting for a flood control project along the Brentwood Brook Corridor.

The board also approved a purchase order not to exceed $195,000 to Leonard Jackson Associates based out of Pomona for various work including surveying and environmental assessments.
