Heavy rains that fell on the Fourth of July caused major flooding in Millvale.

The Army Corps of Engineers will host two flood-proofing workshops for community officials and homeowners.

The workshops are designed to provide an education on types of nonstructural flood-proofing techniques and to provide information on topics such as insurance options and grant programs.

Federal and state agency representatives will give presentations and be available to answer questions.

The first workshop will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. July 17 at the Oakdale Community Center, 104 Seminary Ave. in Oakdale.

The second and third workshops will be held July 18 at the Bradys Bend municipal building, 1004 State Route 68 in Bradys Bend. A workshop will be held there from 1 to 4:30 p.m. for community officials and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. for homeowners.

The workshops are free and open to the public. Registration is required.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
