  STAFFORD – It’s been a rainy year so far in Stafford Township and the Mayor and Township Council are hosting a workshop that might be able to help.

  Join in on September 9 at 7 p.m. for a “Drainage Workshop” in the Township Council meeting room located at 260 East Bay Avenue, Manahawkin, NJ.

  During the workshop, the Township Administrator, Township Engineer and Superintendent of Public Works will review the short term and long term strategies for reducing flooding in the township, particularly focusing on Ocean Acres and roadways that intersect Route 9.

  If you live on or near the following areas, this workshop directly affects you:

  • Neptune Basin at the intersection of Route 72 and Neptune Drive
  • Atlantis Avenue to Forecastle Avenue
  • The intersections of Route 9 and Oxycocus Road
  • Route 9 and McKinley Avenue

  After an initial presentation, the public will be asked to provide input on flood prone areas and ask questions. In response, the Stafford Township Department of Public Works will use this workshop to help determine what may be done in the future to increase the system’s capacity to reduce flooding in the township.
