Sodus Chamber to host meeting to talk flooding along Lake Ontario

The Sodus Chamber of Commerce has entered the discussion and debate around rising waters on Lake Ontario.

For the last several years shoreline residents and businesses have been adversely impacted by water management on the lake.

The Chamber plans to hold a meeting on Thursday, March 5th at the Alton Fire Department located at 5755 Route 14 to discuss the implications of Plan 2014.

Some contend that the plan has driven flooding along the lakeshore. Meanwhile, the International Joint Commission contends that excessive precipitation has played a bigger role in flooding.

“Plan 2014 has far-reaching impacts on non-shoreline property owners,” said chamber officials. Among concerns, according to reporting by the Finger Lakes Times, is that property values could be impacted by the continued flooding and erosion.
