After suffering damages from Hurricane Sandy, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation partnered with NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to redesign upland park features and re- think the shoreline at Nyack Beach State Park, a 61-acre park on the western bank of the Hudson River.
This project is at the design-stage and has not yet been implemented.
- Storm water runoff can cause a significant amount of damage to infrastructure and the shoreline itself if the topography is steep and the water is unmanaged. Addressing big-picture issues like storm water management can be vital to the long-term success of a shoreline project.
- Ease of permitting should be considered when designing project components.
