Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich says he has issued a letter to International Joint Commission (IJC) Chairwoman Lana Pollack calling on the board to maintain or increase Lake Ontario outflows.
In his letter to Pollack, Reilich says if the IJC reduces outflows, residents along the shore line would face similar flooding situations as last year.
In an effort to minimize damage from potential flooding, the Town of Greece has already begun deploying sand bags, sandbagging equipment, and new piping.
Last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo also called on the IJC to maintain or increase Lake Ontario outflows.
