Conservation Advisory Council meeting March 8th-with County Legislator (water issues)
Release Date: February 26, 2012

The Town of Greenburgh Conservation Advisory Council is pleased to announce that Westchester County Legislator for the 12th District, MaryJane Shimsky, will speak at the public meeting of the CAC on March 8 (Thursday), 7 pm, at Greenburgh Town Hall, on water issues in Southern Westchester.

 
Most of the communities in Southern Westchester consist of hills and valleys. Some communities have a heavy presence of bedrock, with often only several feet (or less) of soil of top of the bedrock. Southern Westchester communities are generally highly developed and activities on one property, such as adding impervious surfaces or removing trees and vegetation, frequently affects water flows on neighboring properties and protected natural features. Impacts can include damaging foundations of existing homes, soil erosion, and potentially even flooding of local residential and commercial areas and Westchester watercourses such as the Bronx River and the Saw Mill River.
 
The discussion will focus on balancing the need for development with the need for protecting the environment of Southern Westchester. Among other things to be discussed are prioritizing green solutions to keep the water on site.
