Project is Located:

Several Counties throughout the State

Project Description:

In accordance with New York City's 2007 Filtration Avoidance Determination, the applicant proposes to include an expansion of the Watershed Land Acquisition Program to include City-funded Flood Buyout Program. The program is designed to provide funding to acquire flood hazard properties that have not met the Federal or State buy-out criteria. Any property proposed for acquisition under this Flood Buy Out Program will be reviewed and approved, conditionally approved, or rejected by the municipality that the property is bounded by. The applicant has applied for a modification of Special Condition 7b of the Water Supply Permit to include City-funded buyouts. Like the Federal (FEMA) or State funded buy-out programs, properties in the City Funded buyouts would not need to meet the minimum size criteria or natural features criteria which are otherwise required under the Extended Land Acquisition Program, nor would such parcels be subject to the acquisition exclusions (designated hamlets and village areas). The documents are available for review online at
