West Pittston Residents Sign On in Push for a Levee
Signs proclaiming “Levee Now!” and “Save Our Town” are going up all over West Pittston Saturday, September 27. But the main line of message boards will be along the banks of the Susquehanna River where residents want a levee built to protect the town from flooding.
West Pittston Tomorrow sees the signs as a “paper levee” that they hope will draw attention to the need to fill in the 1.4-mile gap in the Wyoming Valley levee system.
