Our Mission

The mission of the LCFPA is to protect the community from loss of lives, property and infrastructure due to high water events along the Susquehanna River. The success of this mission is dependent upon the LCFPA’s continued maintenance, operation and repair of the WVFRMP in accordance with established Federal standards. These standards are documents in the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) published Operation and Maintenance Manuals (O&MM) in which the Authority is contractually obligated to adhere to. Annually, the USACE performs an evaluation of the maintenance and operation of the flood risk reduction system. This information is shared with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for a levee certification determination for National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) purposes.

The Board

"An effective group spirit on a board is one that attracts its members, makes them want to work with one another, and gives them a sense of pride and satisfaction in the organization and the board itself." - Cyril Houle
