WASHINGTON (WHEC) -- New York U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer raised concerns about Lake Ontario's water level.
Schumer met with the Canadian Consul General and her successor to discuss the above-average lake levels for this time of year.
The Democrat urges the officials to do everything possible to mitigate the risk of a repeat of last year's historic flooding.
Schumer called for increased outflows at the Moses-Saunders Dam on the Saint Lawrence River. Lake Ontario discharges water into the Saint Lawrence River.
