Wildwood Crest to present Flood Mitigation and Storm Sewer Master Plan


The Borough of Wildwood Crest, through its engineer, DeBlasio & Associates, is set to present its Flood Mitigation and Storm Sewer Master Plan at the next regular meeting of the Wildwood Crest Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, May 22, at 5:30 p.m.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this meeting, which will take place in the courtroom on the first floor of Wildwood Crest Borough Hall located at 6101 Pacific Avenue.

The Borough of Wildwood Crest has been historically subject to flooding, beach erosion and many other associated problems that require an aggressive approach to successfully manage infrastructure maintenance and flood damage mitigation.

Wildwood Crest has developed a varied approach to protect and maintain its infrastructure, natural areas, public safety and the welfare and property of its residents and continues to improve in this regard through the implementation of improvements, new technologies and with the assistance of outside public and private agencies.

The borough will continue to pursue and improve upon methods to educate its residents, protect its coastline, manage its infrastructure and natural areas and mitigate the efforts from flood damage and natural disasters.

The implementation of the Flood Mitigation and Storm Sewer Master Plan has been an ongoing activity and demonstrates the borough’s continued commitment to its goals.

Wildwood Crest’s Flood Mitigation and Storm Sewer Master Plan has been developed for the purpose of educating the borough, the public and private property owners of existing flood challenges; establishing the recommendations to mitigate the adverse impact of flooding and other coastal hazards; providing flood mitigation infrastructure options to guide the borough when considering capital improvements; complying and potentially enhancing the borough’s status with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS) program; and participating and coordinating flood mitigation efforts with federal, state, county and local entities.

For further information, contact DeBlasio & Associates at 609-854-3311 or the Wildwood Crest borough clerk’s office at 609-729-8040.
