The Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority (LCFPA) was created in 1996 as an element of the $200 million Wyoming Valley Levee Raising Project. Under an executed Project Cooperation Agreement (PCA) between the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the LCFPA, the Authority is responsible for the maintenance, operation and repair of the Wyoming Valley Flood Risk Management Project (WVFRMP). It is the mission of the Authority to protect the Wyoming Valley from loss of lives, property and infrastructure due to emergency high water events along the Susquehanna River in Northeast Pennsylvania.
