Pompton Lakes Dam
The storm is forecast to linger for 36 hours, according to experts. The prolonged event means high tides will complicate the effects of the storm.
The nearly 600-page report found that the Pompton Lakes Dam floodgates worked correctly during Hurricane Irene last August and during flooding in March of 2010 and March of 2011.
Floodwaters rose all across New Jersey, closing roads from side streets to major highways as Irene, the first hurricane to make landfall in the state in more than a century, weakened and moved on, leaving more than 600,000 homes and businesses without power.
Hundreds of people remained out of their homes Saturday as major flooding continued along the Passaic and Raritan rivers in New Jersey.
