Come spring time, the IJC will say they didn't see this high water coming until it was too late.

What a mess this has become?

I understand that this is a "follow the money" scenario but can someone please explain to me why the prior plan wasn't working?

I agree Legacy, and all of us wish we could answer that question, why they tried (with plan 2014) to fix something that wasn't broken.

Here we go again. And nobody will bother to put floating docks in. Thank God for Newfane Marina, the only people that had the sense to install floating docks. Niagara State Park and all the rest will be unusable AGAIN for the second time in the past 3 years. Some blue barrels and treated lumber and you could build them at a very reasonable price.

Floating docks would be nice. The problem is , you need a boat to get to them. Parking lots are under a foot ( or more ) of water

Most ports have webcams. You should be able to tell if piers are underwater. In two months many of us will be out trolling and can report out.

Does anyone know if the marina at Sandy Creek will be open this year?

If you are referring to Sandy Creek Marina, it was purchased and the new owner intends on opening.

Wonder if they plan on using the existing docks.

It was working fine for 60 years. What wasn’t working was the $50M/day profit that the shipping industry claimed it was losing. In the end, whenever the government is involved, money always wins. I think a good chunk of the southern shore will be completely lost this year. Good luck setting gear with house parts floating everywhere.

The new issue this year will be fitting under the parkway bridge.  Last year I had 4" of clearance to make it.  It looks like the rod holder arch will be modified to tilt back so we can make it under the bridge.

Going to be a problem for a lot of folks.

Should be an interesting year.

The mild winter is flushing water as opposed to storing in form of ice and snow. So far I think we are fine. Alewives should be in great shape. If it stays warm we may be poised to have the second highest alewife hatch on record (prediction based on how 2016 turned out). Sorry Dr Weidel, just another anecdotal prediction lol.
