Continuing in his efforts toward permanent relief for Peckman River communities, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-8) today announced the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has dedicated $129,000 in their 2011 work plan, which would allow the Corps to complete its study of the river. The study's aim is to study to develop alternatives for flood damage reduction and ecosystem restoration in the Peckman River Basin.

"Completing the Peckman River study is a significant step forward in mitigating the flooding that has plagued local residents on an annual basis," said Pascrell, who initiated the study as a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. "Once the study is complete, we can look forward to implementing a solution to minimize the impact of flooding on our local neighborhoods and business districts as well as preserving the river basin's environment."
