ALTERNATIVE PLANS – PROS & CONS WITH EACH
Alternative 1: No action
Alternative 2: Harbor-wide storm surge barrier + shore-based
measures
Alternative 3A: Multi-basin storm surge barriers + shore-based
measures
Alternative 3B: Multi-basin storm surge barriers + shore-based
measures
Alternative 4: Single-basin storm surge barriers + shore-based
measures
Alternative 5: Shore-based measures only
• Alternatives span spectrum from large in-water storm surge gates to
numerous shoreline-based structures. Alternatives also have (or will
have) complementary non-structural and natural and nature-based
features (where feasible).
• Best Solution Appears to Involve Multiple, Layered Features
• Possible Phased Implementation:
1) Short-term: Construct Actionable Features,
2) Mid-Term: Further Evaluate, Design and possibly Construct
Complex Features,
3) Long-Term: Adapt and expand features due to further sea level rise
and climate change
6
FUTURE WITHOUT-PROJECT (FWOP) CONDITION
Assumptions
• Investments in coastal storm risk
management / resiliency projects will
continue
– Federal, state, local government
investment
– Private investment
• Relative sea level rise over time
– Used USACE intermediate projection
for comparing plans in Draft Report
– Considering ALL USACE sea level
rise projections in future study plan
formulation
1% flood extent (with intermediate RSLC)

ALTERNATIVE 3B – THE TENTATIVELY SELECTED PLAN
62.75% Study Area at
Direct Risk Benefited
Alternative 3B includes:
• Jamaica Bay and Southern
Brooklyn Storm Surge Gate
and Shoreline-based Measures
• Kill Van Kull and Arthur Kill
Storm Surge Gates with
Shoreline-based tie-ins
• Storm Surge Gates and
Shoreline-based tie-ins for
Gowanus, Newtown and
Flushing Creeks
• Shoreline-based measures
for Lower Manhattan, East
Harlem, and Jersey City
• Numerous other
complementary structural, non-
structural, and NNBFs (not
shown here) to complement
measures listed above and
better manage remaining
residual
risk (many under
development & evaluation)

SOUTH BROOKLYN SHORELINE-BASED MEASURES AND JAMAICA
BAY STORM SURGE BARRIER
* - For currently selected design storm event
16
• Layout and measures are conceptual and
preliminary.
• Risk reduction features are designed to address
more frequent coastal flooding in red shaded
areas to complement shoreline-based
measures and storm surge barriers in southern
Brooklyn and Queens encompassing Jamaica
Bay that address more severe coastal flooding
for broader green shaded area.
• Elevation of risk reduction features currently
targeted for +10 ft. NAVD88, with assumed +7
ft. NAVD88 closure criteria for the main Jamaica
Bay storm surge barriers (all elevations
correlated to water elevation predictions at the
Battery – for commonality), but this may change
in terms of elevation, layout, and measures from
further evaluation and optimization of main
storm surge closure gate operation criteria.
RISK REDUCTION FEATURE DETAILS
17
RISK REDUCTION FEATURE DETAIL – FRESH CREEK BASIN
• Shoreline-based features only –
floodwalls (along E 108th St)
and revetments at select
shoreline areas
18
OLD HOWARD BEACH & HAMILTON
BEACH RISK REDUCTION FEATURES
• Currently comprised of berms,
floodwalls and navigable gates
• The gate structures have not been
selected or designed – they could be
sector gates, vertical lift gates or
other type of navigable structural
measure.
• They would need further considerable
environmental and engineering
evaluation.
19
RISK REDUCTION FEATURES – BROAD CHANNEL AREA
• Currently comprised of berms,
bulkheads and road raisings
• They would need further considerable
environmental and engineering
evaluation.
20
RISK REDUCTION FEATURES – HEAD OF BAY
• Currently comprised of
berms, bulkheads,
deployable flood
barriers, floodwalls and
navigable gates.
• The gate structures
have not been selected
or designed – they
could be sector gates,
vertical lift gates or
other type of navigable
structural measure.
• They would need
further considerable
environmental and
engineering evaluation.

  • 16. 16 • Layout and measures are conceptual and preliminary. • Risk reduction features are designed to address more frequent coastal flooding in red shaded areas to complement shoreline-based measures and storm surge barriers in southern Brooklyn and Queens encompassing Jamaica Bay that address more severe coastal flooding for broader green shaded area. • Elevation of risk reduction features currently targeted for +10 ft. NAVD88, with assumed +7 ft. NAVD88 closure criteria for the main Jamaica Bay storm surge barriers (all elevations correlated to water elevation predictions at the Battery – for commonality), but this may change in terms of elevation, layout, and measures from further evaluation and optimization of main storm surge closure gate operation criteria. RISK REDUCTION FEATURE DETAILS
