Atlantic City is seeking bids for the second phase of a project to prevent storm-water-related flooding. The work is part of a multi-million-dollar infrastructure project to reduce flooding in the city. The project, which began last year, is mostly being funded by federal grant money.
The current project will install pumps at the Atlantis Ave end of the Baltic Avenue canal – which tends to flood when high tide coincides with heavy rainfall. According to the request for proposals, sealed bids will be received on Tuesday Jan. 10 at 11 am.
Separately, the Army Corps of Engineers and New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection will host a meeting at Stockton University on Thursday Dec. 1 at 6pm to seek public input on strategies to prevent back-bay flooding.
