Huh? I know the supervisor's posting says it's in Edgemont, but I can't picture where it is.

Troublesome Brook runs parallel to Central Avenue south from about Underhill Road. It was partially covered years ago. Behind the Greenville Fire House you can still see it above ground.
I'm sure others can give you a better sense of its full length and current status, but I recall the parking lot at the Fire House used to flood after heavy rains.

Your 100 percent right Jim the brook is behind the fire house.

I thought Troublesome Brook ran right through Town Hall. :D

I am resident of 40 Dalewood Drive, Hartsdale. My house was flooded and damaged badly in April. What Brook does my street belong to? Please advise. Mulong Yu

Why would the town pay for its own study when the county is already handling it on a regional level? Seems like a waste of town money and an unnecessary duplication of efforts.
