students studying storm water system

Penn State Harrisburg students' stormwater study aims to reduce local flooding

Nearly five inches of rain fell on Middletown Borough on July 23, 2017, most of it within one hour. The amount of water was simply more than the borough's stormwater system could handle. Flooding occurred in several locations in the borough and the entrance to the Penn State Harrisburg campus from Route 230 was also under water. Senior engineering students at the college think they can help if it happens again.
