Public Meeting June 26 on Meadow Brook Flood Protection Project

June 19, 2024

The City of Scranton will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, June 26, at 5:30 p.m., at Holy Rosary Center, 300 W. Market St., Scranton, to discuss the next phase of Scranton’s Meadow Brook flood protection project.

In 2021, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) committed to reconstructing Meadow Brook from the Dunmore border to Green Ridge Street. The Pennsylvania Department of General Services is leading the project. The City is responsible for easements and acquisitions along the project site, which will impact about 45 residents.

Meadow Brook runs intermittently through some residential areas from the Dunmore and Forest Hill Cemeteries to the Lackawanna River near Nay Aug Avenue. Replacement of the underground conduit may take about two years.

ABOUT THE CITY OF SCRANTON: Incorporated in 1866, the City of Scranton has a population of approximately 80,000 residents and is the sixth-largest municipality in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Scranton City Hall is located at 340 N. Washington Ave., Scranton, PA 18503.
