The residential neighborhood immediately downstream of the Pell School on Dudley Avenue has experienced substantial flooding over the years during storm events. Some neighbors have linked this flooding to past school expansions, and current plans for improvements at the school have heightened some concerns about potentially increasing flood impacts.
The following report summarizes an analysis looking to better understand the causes of the flooding experienced by the school’s neighbors along Dudley Avenue and simultaneously considers potential alternatives that could reduce the scale and frequency of these events.
A meeting was held March 16, 2022 to discuss these plans.
