Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep. Pashinski Announce $125,000 in State Funds for Solomon Creek Flood Wall

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf, Senator John Yudichak, and Representative Eddie Day Pashinski announced that the state would commit $125,000 for a temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall in Wilkes-Barre to try to prevent further erosion until a full repair can be made.“I am glad the state is able to support the temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “My administration will continue to monitor this situation closely and work with local and federal officials for a long-term solution to this serious issue. I want to sincerely thank Senator Yudichak, Representative Pashinski and Mayor George for their swift response and commitment to ensuring the safety of Wilkes-Barre’s citizens.”In the evening of December 9, 2016, approximately 40 feet of the Solomon Creek flood wall along Brook Street collapsed.  The immediate short term solution consists of repairing the failure location with a moment slab style wall for a distance of approximately 48’ between existing wall construction joints. This will eliminate the risk of more of the wall collapsing.“Mayor George has worked non-stop to find funding to repair the damaged Solomon Creek flood wall, and with the Governor’s release of $125,000 in state funds, we are one big step closer to addressing the long-standing problems related to Solomon Creek,” said State Senator Yudichak.“I would like to sincerely thank Gov. Wolf for his commitment to assist Sen. Yudichak and me to secure much needed funding for the Solomon Creek emergency,” said Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski. “I am pleased to announce the Gov. along with the House and Senate Appropriations staff have released $125,000 to jump start the construction necessary to protect the residents and businesses in the South Wilkes-Barre area.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep.
