This spring, Clarkstown is working on several drainage projects for flood remediation, town officials said. 
  •    Central Nyack - Phase II, Construction continuing
  •    Cranford Drive, New City - Permitting
  •    West Nyack Drainage Study, Analysis and Identification of Improvements continuing
  •    Klein Avenue, West Nyack - Levee Improvements, Permitting
The town received three grants this winter from New York State for flood remediation. 

New York state gave Clarkstown a $3.46 million grant for the Klein Avenue Levee project to deal with constant high flows in the Hackensack River causing floods in the hamlet.

The grant, given through the Launch Coastal Protection projects, enables the Town to increase the height and length of the levee and implement other innovative enhancements. 

An additional $3 million came through the NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program, established to provide additional rebuilding and revitalization assistance to communities damaged by SuperstormSandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.  Clarkstown will use the funds in various projects.

$1 million from the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation will be used for needed environmental restoration and flood prevention measures near the West Nyack Hamlet Green Pocket Park on West Nyack Road.
