Money Available for Susquehanna

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer has announced that the U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers’ (USACE) Civil Works Work Plan for FY 2015 included $600,000 for a feasibility study for the Susquehanna River Basin.

This Upper Susquehanna River Basin Comprehensive Flood Risk Management Study will provide mitigation projects and long-term stability to a flood-affected region.

The USACE still needs to provide a detailed account of how the agency plans to utilize the funding to complete this study and provide residents and businesses with real solutions.

As a result, Schumer is urging the USACE to provide an update and detailed timeline given the significant funding that was allocated and the dire need on the local level to keep this project moving forward.

In his letter, Schumer requested the USACE provide an update on the study’s progress and a timetable for moving forward, including when stakeholders can expect implementation of its findings.

Schumer said that the constant risk of flood damage to homes and businesses makes the USACE study of utmost important to Southern Tier residents, and he will continue to press that it must remain a top priority.
