CRANFORD – The state Legislature has allocated funding for a flood control project intended to benefit Cranford and several neighboring towns along the Rahway River, according to a Cranford Chronicle report.
Cranford Mayor Tom Hannen said that $300,000 has been earmarked for the South Mountain Regional Detention Basin project, which is expected to lower water elevation by 1.5 feet or more during peak storm conditions in Cranford, Millburn, Springfield and Union.
The Army Corps of Engineers is expected to make a recommendation to the Mayors’ Coalition on the Rahway River next month about projects that will fit into a cost-funding analysis, according to the report.
