Close to $3 million is headed to the Southern Tier to help rehabilitate and assess the safety of five dams in the region.

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York says the $2.9 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Resources Conservation Service will fix up dam sites at Little Choconut, Finch Hollow, Nanticoke Creek, Patterson Brixus and Brandywine Creek in Broome County and for safety assessments at Pelto in  Tioga County.

The Democrat says improvements and safety monitoring will be integral in saving life and property in the event of future flooding threat.

Federal funding is being directed at safety monitoring at 19 dams and rehabilitation of 11 dams in New York State.
