MIDDLEBURGH – Schoharie County, which to date has received $23.1 million in aid to help with its recovery from damage suffered in 2011 from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, today received an additional $1 million to cope with its continuing revival.

The money was announced at a press briefing her this morning, that included U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, R-19; state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, and Assemblyman Pete Lopez, R-Schoharie.  Seward announced another $650,000 in state aide to the Schoharie County Emergency Watershed Protection plan, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service announced another $300,000.

The protection project is seeking to reconnect the flood plain with four streams – Little Schoharie, Line Creek, Platterkill, and Dave Brown Mountain Tributary – which all flow into the Schoharie Creek.  The repair work will mitigate future flooding and damage to residential and agricultural land.
