Project

Gowanus Canal & Newtown Creek Study

The Gowanus Canal and Newtown Creek Storm Surge Barrier Study is a proactive step in answering questions about how storm surge barriers along inland waterways could function in a dense, urban environment. The feasibility studies will explore how barriers and their associated infrastructure could prevent catastrophic flooding in the neighborhoods adjacent to these bodies of water while also providing enhanced waterfront access, water quality improvements, stormwater management, and opportunities for economic development.
