For homeowners who live along Lake Ontario, the challenges are nearly constant – especially with water levels this year.
When those people need to get work done, they turn to contractors who can help them build breakwalls or other structures to help protect and reduce the risk of flooding.
But those contractors are encountering project challenges of their own.
Marine contractor Bill Gielow has taken on numerous jobs along the shoreline, including one this week on Edgemere Drive in Greece. Gielow is finishing a newly-installed breakwall to keep the pounding waves from the lake away from the home.
