Flood Plan for Little Falls

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Damiano Realty

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved a plan to help provide relief to residents of Little Falls, NJ who reside in the flood plains near the Passaic and Peckman Rivers. The plan, which includes a new $750,000 pumping station on Louis Street, is expected to help ease the flooding concerns of those affected residents and also provide some relief to the high costs of flood insurance to these areas.

I remember when I was a kid, the Passaic River would overflow into Passaic and Lodi.  This is great news!

Jim, flood areas are the worst. I used to have to deal with it in my own back yard.

Brian, thanks for visiting and commenting.

Lorrie, Lodi is still a trouble spot.

Danny, They've been working on tackling this problem for years. Let's hope this is a giant step in the right direction.

To show you how weird California is, when we bought a house on a hillside 884 feet above sea level and not a river within 10 miles, we got the "flood plain disclosure" that is required under California law. The only way we would get flooded is if the big one hit or, depending on your religion, the first or second coming of Christ.

And people wonder why California real estate is so expensive. In many cases there just is no common sense in play anymore.

Best wishes for health, happiness, peace, and prosperity for 2009.

Hi Jim,

     We owned a house in New Milford on the Hackensack River. We have seen the devastation of a lot of water in a confined area. I wish NJ would do more for the people in the flood areas. This looks like a good step in the right direction

And then there's California. One can buy a home on Mount Baldy at 11,000 feet above sea level and one of the disclosure documents one will receive is a on annual, 10-year, 50-year, 100-year, and 500-year flood probabilities. LOL
