Residents of Sodus Point fed up with IJC, flooding as issues continue

Neighbors in Sodus Point are fed up with the flooding.

Many, like Bill Dunn, say they have little faith in the International Joint Commission's 'Plan 2014.'

"I just want to see the water stop, go back to where it was," said Dunn. "It just seems like they rushed into this, without really thinking it through and we’re paying the consequences. We’re suffering."

The high waters are a sight all too familiar for Dunn. The damages he and his wife are facing today are an unfriendly reminder of what they went through in 2017.



"I mean, I built this house as our retirement, our nest egg. And to see it flood and decline in value, I don’t know what I’m going to do," Dunn says.

Now the I.J.C. is investing more money, studying the effects of 'Plan 2014.' Assemblyman for the 130th District, Brian Manktelow, calls it a waste of taxpayer dollars. "We absolutely do not need to spend any more money on the study. We have got so many studies out there."

However, I.J.C. Commissioner, Jane Corwin, says a study into the plan, is the best thing right now. "There are some very concrete steps we can take to try to improve the situation."
