Wilson launches are completely submerged. Also got a look at my neighbors property and it's not good. They have no erosion protection. When we got the house in wilson, 5 years ago, only the white end on the pipe picture was visible, now there is 6 feet of pipe hanging out.

This damage is it for the whole lake or just the southern shores??

I believe it is the whole lake, Canada is having a much worse time with this than us (I think).

He better go to greivance day for the town and get an assessment adjustment for the amount of shoreline he no longer has. Hit the government where it counts...their pockets! It's total bull they can't let a little out without hurting downstream infrastructure.

Town of Greece has been  pumping partially treated sewage into long pond ( Monday& Tuesday)

"It blew those off because the pressure was so great, and sewage was pouring out into the street. We were pumping the street with a half-dozen pumps for three or four days. We weren't keeping up. It got to a dangerous level last night."

The sewer was overwhelming the town pump station, and the fear was sewage would back up into basements, creating a contamination disaster. So town officials began relieving the pressure by pumping the excess sewage through a chlorinator to kill pathogens and then into nearby Long Pond."

 

  Monroe county has released 3.4 MILLION gallons of storm water & UNTREATED SEWAGE into the Genesee River also on Monday

"Monroe County released 3.4 million gallons of stormwater and untreated sewage into the Genesee River about 6:30 p.m. Monday after the rainfall filled available storage"

 

And again the outflows at the dam was reduced yet again. Under the new 2014 plan nothing has to be done to reduce lake levels anymore " a slower natural release of lake water is the preferred method now under 2014 plan", the old 1953 D plan had a binding Must response.

The National guard is in Hamlin now filling sand bags with a sand bag machine till this Friday. Wonder how much all the shoreline town taxes will go up with such an upcoming of lake shore property devaluation happening.

The problems with the Edgemere Drive Pump station have been going on for years, this is an example of some of the neighborhood deciding to bag the sewer use law and hook up sump pumps and gutter drains  to the sewer, which uses up capacity when there are storms like we've been having.   That good old American "my basement is better than your basement so I get to ignore the law."  The remedy would be for the Town to inspect all the homes and get rid of these cross connections, but that would not be politically popular.

 

Pure Waters generally discharges to the river when storms exceed 10 year return frequency, and  over an inch of rain in 45 minutes is an event we fortunately only see once in a great while.  I am surprised that the discharge was only 3.4 million gallons.  Before the CSOAP tunnels were built, it would have all gone to the river.   The manager of collection usually send out a note to the effect that the discharge is later in the storm and heavily diluted, but this one was so fast who knows what part went to the plant and what part to the river

The Erie County Sewer people inspect our homes every five years for sump pump and rain gutter discharges. It makes a difference now. If you do not comply your occupancy permit can be suspended. Well you will be fined first. Then you will have to lose work and show up in court. You do have the inspection when you allow it at your convenience.

I was wondering if there anything that can be done to limit the flow from the upper lakes into Lake Ontario but I haven't seen it mentioned at all.

 

Hope we get a break from all the rain.
