An effort to restore federal funding for a Tioga County stream gauge is underway.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand wants money to be allocated for the Owego Creek stream gauge.

Gillbrand says the gauge was built by local officials north of the village of Owego to help alert residents to potential flooding.

The senator says the $9,800 cost to fund the stream gauge would be more cost-effective than its removal.

Gillibrand says she wrote a letter to the director of the U.S. Geological Survey seeking the funding restoration.

In the letter, Gillibrand says the stream gauge “plays a critical role” in the village’s early warning capability to adequately prepare for flooding.
