JAMAICA BAY PLANNING REGION
Baseline Conditions and Water
Resource Problems
• Loss of 75% of marsh habitat
(over 2000 acres in the last
century)
• Disappearance of Marsh Islands
• Shoreline dominated by non-
native, invasive plant species,
which is a threat to existing
desirable wetland habitats
• Poor benthic habitat
• Poor tidal flushing and circulation
• Continuing shoreline erosion
• Fill and hardened shorelines
• Poor water quality, landfill
leachate, Confined Sewer
Overflows (CSOs) and waste
water discharges
• Straightened and deepened creek
with no finger tributaries (Fresh
Creek)
• Trash and debris
Restoration Opportunities/Measures
• Habitat improvements
• Wetland restoration/creation
• Invasive species removal/native
species plantings
• Tidal Channel
modification/realignment
• Bank stabilization
• Tidal Channel geomorphology
restoration
• Sediment load reduction
• Basin bathymetry reconfiguration to
promote optimal circulation
• Beneficial re-use of material onsite
• Public education/access
Jamaica Bay, Marine Park and Plumb Beach "Source" Feasibility Study Background
• Study Resolution (1990), Reconnaissance Report (1994) and Feasibility Cost Share Agreement
executed with NYCDEP (1996).
• 39 restoration opportunities identified and evaluated.
• Eight (8) restoration sites recommended at USACE milestone meeting in 2010.
• Hurricane Sandy 113-2 Interim Report #2 to Congress identified study to be evaluated for Coastal
Storm Risk Management.
• Restoration opportunities considered in the "perimeter plan" for East Rockaway to Rockaway -
Jamaica Bay Reformulation Study. However, Storm Surge Barrier selected as Tentatively Selected
Plan.
• Six (6) of eight (8) sites were evaluated further for recommendation in HRE Feasibility Report.

FEMA HAZARD MITIGATION GRANT PROGRAM
(HMGP) PROJECT
Goals
 Manage coastal storm risk with Natural/nature-
based features
 Design for self-sustaining and long-term
resilience
 Use integrated approach throughout site
 Decrease risk of fire
 Align with NPS GNRA Management Plan
 Coordinate with complementary Jamaica Bay
projects
PROJECT PARTNERS
• FEMA – grantor
• NYS DHSES – grantee
• NYS DEC – subgrantee
• NPS – landowner
• USACE – project manager contracted by DEC
• A/E Team – Princeton Hydro, Parsons Brinckerhoff,
HDR
• NYC DOT & NYC DPR – adjacent
landowner/manager
PHASE 1 PRELIMINARY CONCEPT PLANS
Concepts (Starting Point):
• vary combination of Nature-Based Features and
measures that manage coastal storm risks, provide
ecosystem benefits and enhance resiliency
• vary in level of excavation activities and movement of
soil
• will be refined and further evaluated to demonstrate
level of protection, costs, benefits, sustainability and
maintenance
• complement other projects/actions
PHASE 1 PRELIMINARY CONCEPT PLANS
COMMON FEATURES
 Berm
o 17-19 foot (NAVD 88) berm
o 50-foot-wide path at crest
o tie-ins at Belt Parkway and Addabbo Bridge
 Freshwater wetlands
 Flap gates
 Nuisance stormwater control
 Local access points
 Improved edge aesthetic
ALL CONCEPTS: POTENTIAL EDGE TREATMENT
SPRING CREEK SOUTH HMGP STATUS
 Concept Design Memo posted on NYSDEC website
 Finalizing schematic concept design
 Draft Environmental Assessment planned public
release end of 2017
 Planned submittal of Detailed Designs

HIGH FREQUENCY FLOODING RISK
REDUCTION FEATURES (HFFRRF) FOR
ATLANTIC COAST OF NEW YORK EAST
ROCKAWAY INLET TO ROCKAWAY INLET
AND JAMAICA BAY
24
• Manage flood risk resulting from high frequency flooding
in the back-bay
• Build off the previous work done for Rockaway Study and
for NYC on the Raised Shorelines project
• Further screen, identify, and develop these measures for
inclusion in the Final GRR/EIS
• Projects must be independently justified with a positive
BCR and must be able to function independently in
advance of the construction of a storm surge barrier
OBJECTIVES OF HFFRRF
• Manage flood risk resulting from high frequency flooding
in the back-bay
• Build off the previous work done for Rockaway Study and
for NYC on the Raised Shorelines project
• Further screen, identify, and develop these measures for

  • 3. HRE ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION DRAFT INTEGRATED FEASIBILITY REPORT/ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT  Evaluates ecosystem restoration within the entire Port of NY/NJ  Restores wetland habitat and function, improves water quality, and quality of life for the Metropolitan Regions’ 22 Million citizens  Study Area: 25 mile radius around the Statue of Liberty 3 Newark Bay, Passaic River, Hackensack River Lower Hudson River Arthur Kill/ Kill Van Kull Lower Raritan River Jamaica Bay Lower Bay Upper Bay Harlem River, East River, Western Long Island Sound HRE Study Area
  • 4. 4HRE ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION FEASIBILITY STUDY HRE TENTATIVELY SELECTED PLAN 33 Sites Recommended for Construction and ~ 242 Sites for Future Feasibility Studies (10 on Hudson)
  • 5. • Habitat to restore/create up to:  360 acres of estuarine wetland habitat (including 5 Jamaica Bay Marsh Islands)  12 acres of freshwater riverine wetland habitat  81 acres of coastal and maritime forest habitat  5.5 acres of riparian forest habitat  59 acres of oyster habitat (5 reefs)  Installation of 2 fish ladders  Modification of 3 weirs 5  3.83 miles of bank stabilization  2.35 miles of stream channel restoration • Leveraging resources from partners and stakeholders to restore the HRE  Advancing goals of the HRE Comprehensive Restoration Plan HRE ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION FEASIBILITY STUDY HRE TENTATIVELY SELECTED PLAN ~$644 Million
  • 6. JAMAICA BAY PLANNING REGION Baseline Conditions and Water Resource Problems • Loss of 75% of marsh habitat (over 2000 acres in the last century) • Disappearance of Marsh Islands • Shoreline dominated by non- native, invasive plant species, which is a threat to existing desirable wetland habitats • Poor benthic habitat • Poor tidal flushing and circulation • Continuing shoreline erosion • Fill and hardened shorelines • Poor water quality, landfill leachate, Confined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) and waste water discharges • Straightened and deepened creek with no finger tributaries (Fresh Creek) • Trash and debris Restoration Opportunities/Measures • Habitat improvements • Wetland restoration/creation • Invasive species removal/native species plantings • Tidal Channel modification/realignment • Bank stabilization • Tidal Channel geomorphology restoration • Sediment load reduction • Basin bathymetry reconfiguration to promote optimal circulation • Beneficial re-use of material onsite • Public education/access Jamaica Bay, Marine Park and Plumb Beach "Source" Feasibility Study Background • Study Resolution (1990), Reconnaissance Report (1994) and Feasibility Cost Share Agreement executed with NYCDEP (1996). • 39 restoration opportunities identified and evaluated. • Eight (8) restoration sites recommended at USACE milestone meeting in 2010. • Hurricane Sandy 113-2 Interim Report #2 to Congress identified study to be evaluated for Coastal Storm Risk Management. • Restoration opportunities considered in the "perimeter plan" for East Rockaway to Rockaway - Jamaica Bay Reformulation Study. However, Storm Surge Barrier selected as Tentatively Selected Plan. • Six (6) of eight (8) sites were evaluated further for recommendation in HRE Feasibility Report.
