In brief: HIA to help with flood mitigation study
The Harrisburg International Airport's board of directors recently agreed to work with the state and area municipalities to study and seek funding for flood mitigation, especially flooding associated with Stoner Run.
Stoner Run is a primary source of regional stormwater that flows from Lower Swatara Township through residential and commercial property, through airport property, and eventually into the Susquehanna River. The Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority recently concluded a study of possible upstream controls to mitigate the impact of Stoner Run on the airport drainage system.
The next steps would be to conduct a preliminary engineering investigation and a conceptual design of potential solutions, SARAA said in a news release. However, the money has not been found to support continuing with those plans.
