There is a current study of the Newark Levee System in place to determine corrective actions to make the Levee safer, up to date, and certify the system. Burgess & Niple is the firm currently tasked with this study.

A drainage study has been completed for the area around Steel Avenue. A larger basin study is in the works due to the large area contributing to the stormwater problems in this sub basin area. A request for proposals has been issued to help engineer a solution for these problems.
