The Engineering and Construction Program is responsible for administering shore protection, dam restoration and flood control projects throughout the State of New Jersey. The program is managed by Assistant Commissioner Dave Rosenblatt who oversees three organizational areas:
- Bureau of Coastal Engineering
- Bureau of Dam Safety and Flood Control
- Office of Flood Hazard Risk Reduction Measures
Projects are funded through the Dam, Lake, Stream, Flood Control, Water Resources, and Wastewater Treatment Project Bond Act of 2003 and the Shore Protection Fund and are individually managed through the Office's Bureau of Coastal Engineering and Bureau of Dam Safety & Flood Control.
Engineering and Construction is now coordinating or managing more than $1.5 billion in federal post-Sandy projects, including the USACE with coastal construction projects that will complete our strategy for a comprehensive shore protection system.
Additionally, the Office of Flood Hazard Risk Reduction Measures is responsible for two Rebuild by Design projects on the Hudson River and in the Meadowlands with $380 million of new funding.
