Storm Waters

  On Friday-10-July affects from Hurricane Fay produced heavy rain fall throughout Northern New Jersey for most of the day.  Bogota would suffer small power outages and damage from falling trees limb.  The normal low spot at Elm Ave at River Rd was closed to traffic. The heavy rains and poor drainage  along the CSX railroad embankment force that stream there to spilled on the Elm Ave just after the cross with Larch Ave. Waters reached around 3 feet over  flood stage and was closed to traffic. 
 Meanwhile along W.Ft.Lee rd between   River Rd and the Hackensack River was able to stay open, With the construction of the Atwater project the developer also took on the task of repairing the drainage system from the roadway to the river.  This was able to the thoroughfare open with only a minimum of pooling in low spots. Part of the agreement the developer has with the Bergen County  was to maintain drainage along the complex. Final repaving of W. Ft.Lee rd will occur after mayor construction at the Atwater development is nearer completion.
