Nine members of the Bergen Grass Roots Task Force on Flooding set out on a Hackensack Riverkeeper pontoon boat to discover how these marshes and wetlands impact their communities. The group includes Charles Powers, Professor of Engineering from Vanderbilt University, and the mayors of Little Ferry, New Milford, and Secaucus.
