Proposed Flooding Fix for West Pittston
WEST PITTSTON, Pa. -- After years of pleading for a flooding fix, some residents in Luzerne County may be getting what they asked for. A potential plan for a $50 million levee system in West Pittston was presented at a meeting at Wyoming Area Secondary Center Wednesday night. Engineers looked over several different ideas. One was to clean out the bed of the Susquehanna River by dredging, but engineers say the most effective solution would be to build a levee.
