Coudersport Receives Flood Control Grant

The Commonwealth Financing Authority this week awarded $466,730 to Coudersport for a flood control project. The grant will be used to raise the levee, add an embankment and remove debris and sediments from the Allegheny River levee. The borough also will modify the Mill Creek levee by raising it, adding embankment material and removing debris and sediments. The repairs and upgrades will allow for Federal Emergency Management Agency certification and accreditation, which ensures homeowners and businesses in the area remain eligible for repair and rehabilitation funds. This funding is an important investment in maintaining our flood-control infrastructure, which is vital to public health and safety in Coudersport and areas downstream.
