$10 Million Dollar Flood Wall
If you do not want Long Hill Township to spend $10 Million Dollars + on an outdated proposal from the Army Corp of Engineer's, please sign this petition. Long Hill's cost initially will be $875,000 + any over runs or additional cost of maintaining, repairing and operating this levee. These costs are unknown. The ACOE's stated this Wall may only work 60% of the time and only help a portion of the residents. We've researched and contacted Ella Filippone, Director of the Passaic River Coalition. She's devoted most of her life studying the Passaic River, tributaries, streams, etc. and she strongly feels that this Wall will not help our town's flooding problem, in fact it will make it worst! The Sierra Club, an environmental group has expressed concern over the asbestos, arsenic and mercury found in the bore hole samples from the area where this wall will be constructed. Our ball fields will suffer greatly because the Wall will stop behind Shoprite and flood water will flow with more intensity around the wall and down Poplar. We have no idea what the "Real" cost will be for this project or what this will cost us as taxpayer's. Please sign this petition if you are against the proposed flood wall in Long Hill Township.
