Flood Control

1 post in this topic

Although a lot of people are dealing with water in their basements in Rochester,this could have been worse. Anybody who was around in 1978 would agree, half of Rochester was under water.

We all should thank those who had the foresight to create the flood control that we have in place today.

I hiked in to Chester Woods reservoir from the south,and the water was completly covering the cement structure that lets the water out of the lake.This is normally about 10 feet above the water.I also went to willow Creek and it was the same.Just think of how much water they are holding back.

Not only are these reservoirs a blast for recreation they are saving millions of dollers in flood damage
