Berm / Flood Dike

The work on the berm/flood dike includes construction of about 1,000 feet of an earthen berm to protect the area north of 9th Street between Bay Avenue and Atlantic Avenue from higher than normal tidal events. The work includes restoration/stabilization of approximately 50,000 sq ft of vegetated wetland. Town staff recently met with wetland permit agencies to get an update on the progress with the flood dike modification. During the meeting, the revised plans and drawings were reviewed. The Town received permits for continuing the work on the flood dike with modifications approved from the original design from MDE and the Army Corps of Engineers after a long review process. Work is expected to resume the end of March 2017.
