Help to Prevent Flooding
NOXEN — This Power to Save has to do with stabilizing the banks and bed of a creek to help prevent flooding.
According to the DEP, a clay bar at the bottom of Bowman’s Creek in the Noxen area began to erode after the September flood.
Now the state is trying to stabilize the bottom, as well as the banks that eroded.
The state hopes all the work will lead to better flood protection in that part of Wyoming County.
