Flood Protection Projects To Commence In Boro



Several projects will commence to fortify flood protection in and around the Emporium Borough following announcements of coming funding received over the past several weeks.

Emporium Borough Manager Don Reed stated that an application for money to fund a levee study was declined by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). However, Reed received word after those results were received that the Army Corps of Engineers and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will take over the study and include the system in a levee pilot program.
