Village Update – October 24, 2019
A lot has occurred in the last 2 weeks. The biggest announcement is that all 4 of the village’s REDI projects have been approved. The projects include building a beach dune along the numbered streets, installing riprap along Lakestones, installing riprap along White Birch and developing a comprehensive stormwater conveyance system on Wickham Blvd, Bay St Ext, and Greig St. That will include a number of site improvements including curbs, sidewalks, floodwalls and 4 permanently installed pumps in decorative shelters. The next step is to hire engineers to finalize the designs and develop construction bid specifications. We will be working with NYS on each project and hope to get specific contact information within the next week. We’ve posted the information created by O’Brien and Gere, the engineers hired by NYS to assist in the REDI process on the front page of the website. These are large files and may take a moment to load.
NYS has also filed a lawsuit against the IJC seeking monetary damages. This lawsuit was filed by NYS DEC using the DEC counsel in NYS Supreme Court. I find it interesting that the attorney general did not file this and that it was not filed in federal court. We’ll have to see how this plays out.
Today our water level is below 246.06 and has been at or about that number for several days. We need the outflow to stop decreasing and the rains to leave the Great Lakes region. There remains lots of discussions, public and private about curtailing shipping. We’ll have to see if the board takes action this week at their semi-annual meeting.
The application for the NYS Homeowner Resiliency program can be found here: https://hcr.ny.gov/lake-ontario-st-lawrence-river-flood-relief-and-recovery-grant-program.
Information on the business program can be found here: https://esd.ny.gov/lake-ontario-business-resiliency-program At this time I don’t know the specifics on the village match to this program. We have sought more specific information from NYS and NYCOM.
This is very important! Please gather your damage pictures and complete the survey put out by the IJC’s Great Lakes Adaptive Management Committee. This is the committee that can recommend changes to Plan 2014. Even if you only had minimal issues, please complete the survey. The survey can be found at: (https://ijc.org/en/glam/watershed/questionnaire/high-water-levels-2019)
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Dave McDowell Dmcdowell@SodusPoint.info
