Madison Street, near Route 4. It runs adjacent to Cole's Brook.

This is why we need a Coles Brook Flood Control Commission, composed of Hackensack, Maywood, Paramus and River Edge residents.  We need flood detention improvements along both Coles Brook and Van Saun Creek.  There's room behind Lowes, in Staib Park where the abandoned basketball area is, and in select parts of Borg's Woods overrun with invasives.  Even just south of Beech Street. And additional areas in Paramus. If water can be held upstream, there will be less water in the creek downstream.  The brook can be widened in some areas as well
