An aqua dam was installed along the lakeside residential properties at 2174/2178/2184 Old Edgemere Drive in the Town of Greece. This location is a low area on the shoreline of Lake Ontario and during the severe flooding event last year, it was the site of extensive waters that ran through the property and caused flooding in the road.

The Aqua Dam protects the entire neighborhood from further flooding and infrastructure stress and damage. It also prevents continued flooding and allows the road to be kept clear of flood waters for the benefit of lakeshore residents and emergency service vehicles and protected the Town’s infrastructure (road, storm sewer and sanitary sewer systems) from increased damage.

Representatives from the NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control coordinated the reinstallation of the aqua dam with assistance by Greece DPW Crew Members.
