Lake Ontario has a problem.
Well, shoreline residents have a problem, which has become common over the last several years. The lake is higher-than-normal, or higher than the ‘normal’ that many had grown accustomed to in past decades.
The Emergency Services Director for Niagara County Jonathan Schultz doesn’t usually meet with the Lake Ontario Planning Committee until April, but he’s meeting with that committee this month in anticipation of the high water levels, according to News10NBC.
He says they are planning for a peak of 250 inches this year, which is higher than the 2017 peak of 248.9 inches.
If the pace continues – Schultz says the results of this spring’s flooding will be significantly more devastating than it was in 2017.
