Project Description

D&B Project Responsibilities

sandy003On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy—a Category 2 storm at its peak—wreaked havoc on parts of the US east coast including the Town of Brookhaven, New York. The hurricane caused severe and widespread damage throughout Brookhaven.

D&B Engineers and Architects, P.C. was selected by the Town of Brookhaven to assess the damage  incurred at several sites along it’s shorelines due to Superstorm Sandy: stormwater drainage outfall sites   located at Hallock Landing Road in Rocky Point, Sills Gully Road in Shoreham, Riverhead Drive in Sound Beach, and Grandview Drive in Blue Point.

It was our objective to properly document the damage incurred due to this storm and assist the Town with FEMA reimbursement. In addition, D&B provided engineering and construction management services to  improve these sites.
