TOWN/VILLAGE TO CLEAR DEBRIS FROM SAW MILL RIVER TOMORROW-TO REDUCE FLOODING ON SAW MILL RIVER
Release Date: October 05, 2011

GREENBURGH AND ELMSFORD TO START CLEARING DEBRIS FROM SAW MILL RIVER TOMORROW –TO HELP REDUCE FUTURE FLOODING (Thursday, October 6)
  The town of Greenburgh, working with the village of Elmsford, Mayor Williams & Brookfield, will be clearing debris from the Saw Mill River tomorrow. Brookfield is donating heavy equipment to help out. We expect to use a combination of workers in a small row boat with saws to cut away fallen trees and then use heavy equipment to drag the trees out of the channel. We hope to get debris within the river down past Babbitt Court and as close to Woodland Lake as we can safely go. Crews will work for several days to get as much debris as we can.
  This action step is being taken in response to feedback we have received from businesses and residents who have been impacted by flooding.  We believe that these initial action steps are a start to mitigate flooding. Removal will help mitigate some of the flooding but will not cure the problem.
 We will be seeking reimbursement for our efforts.  Work will start near Mortelleti’s/Rini’s--. If people are interested in observing  the removal of the debris, please follow the bike path from Rini’s and head south.
  Action is what residents want –not words of support!
