Hi Everyone,
 
There is still no official authorization of the ABC Flood Group so there will be no meeting tomorrow evening.
 
However, progress is being made towards finalizing the Joint Powers Agreement between Arlington, Belmont & Cambridge, but it does not appear that it will be finalized in time for the next meeting scheduled for May 13, 2014.  In order to prepare for the first the official meeting I would like to ask whether people would be interested in meeting informally on May 13th to re-introduce ourselves to the issues and discuss agenda items we can to re-start the group with.
 
 
Please let me know if you are interested in attending an informal May meeting or if you have any ideas for preliminary agenda items.
 
Thank you,
 
Wayne

Wayne,

I think we need to talk about the differences between the FEMA
flood mapping and the Army Corps mapping. If I recall, that was a
topic at our last meeting -- was it November or December 2012?

...and I would suggest including as a topic of discussion the DCR's practice of drawing down the river in advance of a predicted rain event up to 1.5 feet below mean thus allowing storm water erosion of the banks which reduces flood capacity of the river.

Wayne,

    I think we need to talk about the differences between the FEMA
flood mapping and the Army Corps mapping.  If I recall, that was a
