Services – Due Diligence & Site Assessment
City of Paterson (Current)
The City of Paterson has been severely impacted by flooding along the Passaic River. The City, with funding from the State Green Acres Program, has initiated a buy-back program to acquire these properties, demolish them and move habitants from the flood prone area.
The City of Paterson buy-back program is called the Paterson Northside Property Buyback Program Acquisition / Demolition Project. JM Sorge, Inc. (JMS) was retained by the City of Paterson to conduct Preliminary Assessments (PA) for 30-50 of these properties. JMS has completed more than half of the PAs, all in accordance with the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation (TRSR) and Green Acres standards. These properties will be purchased and the structures demolished, protecting the City from the liabilities associated with repeated flooding events here.
