A grant is awarded to Townsend Elementary School on North Street in the Village of Walton to design property protection measures against future flooding. The Catskill Watershed Corporation Board of Directors made the nearly $84,000 award earlier this month. The school is listed as a “Critical Facility” and is located along East Brook which has a history of frequent flooding. In 2006 flood waters entered the school.
