Intro to the Lower Passaic River Presentation
The Lower Passaic River UWFP has developed a slide deck
with background environmental information about the watershed, as well as federal projects. The slides cover the watershed’s geography and land use, public access, sediment contamination, water quality, trash and floatable pollution, navigation, and flooding and resiliency. All of the data shown in the slide deck, as well as contact information for the relevant federal projects, are available herelink.
Public Participation in Federal Flood Risk Projects
These slides, created as part of the Partnership’s Community Involvement Workshops, outline the ways the public can provide input into U.S. Army Corps of Engineers civil works projects, specifically flood risk mitigation and environmental restoration, through the NEPA process. Available here
