Abstract: The devastating impacts of Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 demonstrated how vulnerable Rahway River Basin communities are to the dangers of flooding. Although a few flood risk management projects have already been implemented in the basin by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and others since the 1960s, there are opportunities to better manage flood risk. The Rahway River study, which was authorized in 1998, and was revised to focus on coastal flooding in particular in 2013, investigated alternatives to manage coastal storm risk in the Rahway River Basin, given existing and anticipated future conditions. The enclosed integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment presents the results of the study, including a recommended plan that would contribute to national economic development by reducing the risk of storm surge damages by more than the cost of the project over a 50-year period, while minimizing impacts to the environment.
