FEMA Flood Zones

" The FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) is the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  If you wish to view the mapped flood zones for your area of interest, you may search by street address or place on the MSC at https://msc.fema.gov/portal/searchSearch results will display the best map for the location entered and give you an option of either viewing the map using our online viewer or downloading the map to your computer."


Fats, Oils, and Greases aren't just bad for arteries and wastelines;

they are bad for sewers, too.


Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage homes interiors, and threaten the environment.  An increasingly common cause of overflows is sewer pipes blocked by grease.  Grease gets into the sewer from household drains as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.


Please be advised that O&R will be upgrading their underground gas main to high pressure mains at the following locations:

Prospect (from Commonwealth to Highland)

Jay (from Commonwealth to Highland)

Sunset (from Commonwealth to Highland)

Roosevelt (from Rockwell to Watkins)

Wisner (from Watkins to Highland)

Commonwealth (from Wisner to Prospect)

Highland (from Wisner to Wickham)

Wisner (from N. Beacon to Watkins)

Randall Heights (from Cantrell to Roosevelt)


The entire length of new gas mains is approximately 13,000'.  O&R will directly coordinate the project progress with local residents including any gas services interruption and switching over.

Please continue to visit this site for specific project location schedule updates. 


Attention City of Middletown Residents

Please report any street light outages to the Department of Public Works  office so that Orange and Rockland can be notified to repair them.

Thank you again for your continued cooperation!
