  1. Good for Blmfld. Establishing out your capacities, the condition of your infrastructure and identifying where you are screwed is important. It would have been nice if the County Commissioners had taken the lead and, working through our elected Federal representatives and the County municipalities, solicited an Army Corp of Engineers study from First Mountain to the Passaic River.

    Let’s see. If I was cooking with gas I might even make a tie-in to the Essex-Hudson Greenway and, wait, wait for it….related funding as a new stormwater element.
