REQUEST FOR INFORMATION TO DETERMINE FLOOD MITIGATION MEASURES IN THE STOCKADE STUDY AREA

The City of Schenectady has been awarded funding to assist property owners to preserve their homes by evaluating flooding, examining feasible alternatives and choosing the preferred flood mitigation strategy. Funding is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) through the New York Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES.) The project is divided into two phases:

Phase One: Comprehensive Mitigation Analysis. Funds in the amount of $1,206,000 have been awarded for Phase One and are being used to evaluate existing conditions, assess alternatives, recommend a preferred flood mitigation strategy and design improvements to benefit the Stockade Study Area.

Phase Two: Construction. Based on Phase One results, FEMA will consider awarding just over $7,545,000 for Phase Two Construction.

The preliminary target area for the analysis includes the area bounded by: Front Street, the Stockade CSX Rail Line, the Mohawk River and Cucumber Alley.  The City and a team of consultants are evaluating current conditions.
