Debris and Branches Cleared in Mamaroneck Village; Electrical Restoration Continuing

An update from officials in the Village of Mamaroneck.

 

Update from the Village of Mamaroneck:

Harbor Island Park - all outdoor activities may take place, except any scheduled for Lanza Field (Fields 7 and 8), as the damage and debris clean-up is continuing.

Harbor Island Pavilion - all indoor activities are suspended until further notice. The Pavilion is being cleaned and is undergoing repair and restoration. At the earliest, we anticipate it could reopen for activities the week of Nov. 12.

Road clearing operations and tree removal - As of this afternoon, the last of the approximate 200 trees and major branches down around the village are cleared, and all roads closed by fallen trees are opened for traffic.

Con Edison electricity restoration - At this time approximately 65 percent of power has been restored around the village.  The main problems at the moment relate to damaged electrical feeder lines, transformers, and electrical poles. Since all roads and downed trees and wires have been cleared and are accessible, all efforts will focus on restoration from this time forward.  There are major electrical feeder lines into the City of Rye, Village of Scarsdale, and Towns of Harrison and Mamaroneck that affect delivery of electricity into the village.  We are working with Con Ed to attempt to expedite those situations to decrease any delay in restoration of electricity.

As a warning and advance notice, the village has begun tracking with Westchester Emergency Services a growing coastal storm that could affect the New York Metropolitan Area next Wednesday, Nov. 7.  We ask everyone to be as prepared as possible.  We will provide further updates as available.

To begin coordinating restoration efforts, the Village has also obtained information from the NYS DEC and the United States Army Corps of Engineers, which will be administered through our Building Department and engineers.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has issued General Permit GP-0-12-006, in order to facilitate necessary repairs in NYSDEC Regions 1, 2, and 3.  The General Permit includes authorization for the following activities within New York’s Coastal Erosion Hazard Area (CEHA):

 

1. Stabilization of existing functional storm-damaged dwellings, decks and walkways with temporary bracing and pilings;

2. Construction of a single 4' wide access walkway to access damaged dwellings;

3. Installation of up to four rows of sandbags or 1 cubic yard sand cubes at the toe of storm damaged structures or eroded escarpments;

4. Placement of sand and/or material equivalent to existing material at the toe of eroded escarpments;

5. Reconstruction of existing functional stairways;

6. Re-grade eroded dunes;

7. Reconstruction of existing functional bulkheads and shoreline erosion structures in-kind/in-place;

8. Repair and reconstruction of existing public roads, bridges, utilities and other public infrastructure.

Further updates will be issued as available.  The village is coordinating with the Town for the opening of the Senior Center at 1288 Boston Post Rd. as a shelter and warming center, starting tonight, Friday, November 2, 2012, at 7 p.m.  There will not be any food tonight, but they will begin serving food Saturday. 

Thank you, stay safe over the next several days during this storm recovery.

This is the Shell Gas Station in Mamaroneck at 708 E.Boston Post Rd I have reported our power outage since the hurricane took out our power. I have been reporting to Coned by phone email and online, we were given a repair date by 11/9 although i kept mentioning to them that we have some gas in our tanks and we will be having deliveries from our distributor as soon as power is restored. This morning I go to check the status of the repair on the coned site and it says that my site was never reported as being, even when I called coned this morning they denied the reporting. Does anyone know how to expedite this matter? cause I tried calling my DPW and village and no one answers. Please report this to your state officials or some sort of higher authority. At a time when people are in line for hours and freezing Coned is denying us power. Lastly please be safe and patient we are all in this together. Thanks,Saad Taha contact info:bostonpostservice@gmail.com

Thanks for posting here Saad. I've also posted your comment on the Larchmont Patch Facebook page as well as Twitter. I know a lot of residents are frustrated with the long lines at gas stations (the ones that are actually open).
