A study of flooding trends along the Susquehanna River Basin that has been hung up in the gears of government for years could be lurching forward a little.

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer of New York says a deal has been reached between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and New York State for a three year-long study into flood mitigation.  The study will look at things like the state of the River Basin levees and flood control plans in communities where high water is a problem.

There has yet to be scheduled a meeting in Binghamton to craft a plan for conducting the study.
