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.
Levee crest maintenance road repairs will begin Monday, August 20th in Wyoming and Forty-Fort. To keep the public safe, the Authority requests that people refrain from using these areas of the levee for recreation. Click here for more project information.
The LCFPA Board of Directors Meeting will take place on August 21st at 11AM.
