The three informational meetings will provide an overview of the “Susquehanna Regional River Initiative” and watershed assessment findings completed in the fall of 2018.
Funding for this work is through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Block Grant-Disaster Recover (CDBG-DR) for long-term recovery and resiliency projects. Funding is being delivered through the NY Rising Community Reconstruction (NYRCR) Program of New York State Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR). The purpose of this project is to establish a regional river initiative to build resilience and capacity in the Broome, Tioga and Village of Sidney NY Rising Communities. The project will link the local communities together with a consistent comprehensive watershed approach to understand and address flooding issues in the Upper Susquehanna River.
