The officials say that 3.5 inches of rain should not cause major flooding from the Hackensack River. They say that if Suez North America had warned them that they were releasing water along the river from spillways and the dam, then perhaps the flooding impact wouldn’t have been so severe.

Local officials are now demanding that Suez North America start to communicate better with townships, form a strategy for the Hackensack River to avoid flooding.

A spokesperson for Suez North America told News 12 New Jersey that the company did not release water from the dam. The spokesperson says due to a larger-than-expected rainfall, the reservoir did spill downstream. The company also says that they warned the Office of Emergency Management weeks ago that this could happen. Suez says company officials are willing to sit down with Bergen County Executive James J. Tedesco to formulate a plan going forward.
