Strathmere to Get Enhanced Flood Alert Signage

UT Logo

By Camille Sailer

PETERSBURG – Upper Township Engineer Paul Dietrich informed Committee members at their April 6 meeting that the initiative to install digital signage, in Strathmere, was ready to be implemented.
Committee passed a resolution at the meeting for the purchase of the signage, totaling $14,000. Funding will come from the township’s 2019 capital improvement bond ordinance and the 2020 emergency management operating expenses budgetary line.
The signage is similar to what is being used in neighboring Sea Isle City, regarding alerts for high tides. It issues alerts via email to residents, EMS and police, and also provides warnings to township public works and safety officials. 
“Upper’s system will be automatic, unlike Sea Isle’s, which is manually initiated,” explained Dietrich.
