Innovative Thinking Continues to Save Development from Flooding

Residential development in the City of Middletown used to suffer flooding whenever stormwater topped off Co Rt 78.  

Conventional engineering solutions such as Stormwater Detention Ponds or larger culverts were not feasible or appropriate solutions. 

Innovative thinking in Middletown, which included construction of flood diversion wall continues to save the residential development from the devastation of flooding. 

Photos below were taken during the 6/19/2017 flash flood by Commissioner Tawil.
