Herkimer, NY (WIBX) – A public meeting to address possible flood strategies for the Mohawk River will take place at Herkimer County Community College.

This Thursday, at 1 p.m. in the college’s Robert McLaughlin Center, the Department of Environmental Conservation will talk about the group’s flood response and management plans.

DEC representatives will speak during two panel discussions, along with employees of the National Weather Service and the NYS Office of Emergency Management. Other groups attending include the NYS Canal Corporation, U.S. Geological Survey, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Ecology and Environment and Union College.

There is no charge to attend the meeting, but reservations are encouraged. To register, send an email to floodpln@gw.dec.state.ny.us. For other information, click here.

Due to heavy rain caused by Tropical Storm Irene last year, the Mohawk River rose above flood levels, causing extensive damage throughout the area.
