Gov. Cuomo Shares Flood Prevention Plans

Rochester, N.Y. - Governor Cuomo has laid out a plan he hopes prevents future flooding issues involving Lake Ontario.

The governor unveiled the Lake Ontario Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative, which calls for up to 300 million dollars in spending. The governor says the idea is to develop plans to reduce risk to infrastructure along the lake's waterfront while strengthening the region's local economies.

New York State has committed more than $100 million to rebuild communities along the Lake Ontario shoreline that were devastated by flooding in 2017.
