LAMBERTVILLE - Engineers are making plans to install floodgates and portable pumps to spare Lambertville from flooding.

The flood control project would aim to put excess water back into the Delaware River. It will be funded by about $200,000 from the federal government, plus some smaller contributions from the local budget.

Engineers expect to have work finished by the end of the year.

During heavy storms, parts of Lambertville can become so flooded that evacuations become necessary.
