Progress on Rebuilding Elementary School in Owego
6/25/2012 (Updated 11:31:45 PM)Plans are moving forward to replace the flood damaged elementary school in Owego
According to the school's superintendent, FEMA is moving forward with the paperwork to build a new school.
Early indications are that FEMA prefers to continue using the current site.
That means designing a building that would be above a 500 year flood plain elevation.
If that is not feasible, the district could apply to relocate a new school to a site that is out of the flood plain altogether.
