The Building Department is also involved in safely managing the floodplain. Flooding is part of Rochelle Park’s history. The Sprout Brook and the Saddle River leave their banks during periods of heavy storms and localized flooding can occur during periods of heavy rain.
If you need Information regarding flood prone areas, flood proofing your home or the national flood insurance programs, contact the building dept or visit
