BEFORE THE ICE BOOM THERE WAS AWAYS DAMAGE, NOW THEIR IS LITTLE THANKS TO IT. This year mother nature allowed ice because of the wind to head down stream during these storms because ice went over it and because it broke 2 sections once. Its keeps Lackawanna,Hamburg and Evans COOLER because it holds the ice from going down river and damaging the intakes and river property. So when they pay us for the higher heating bills caused by the boom then you will get compensated for mother nature....SORRY JEFF AND HIS OTHER NEIGHBORS....YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE...save your legal fees and use the non-wasted money to repair your docks!

You people own $500,000 to $1,000,000 homes and own cars, boats, Atv's, in ground pools and etc. But you cannot afford to fix your own docks.. Whatever maybe you can buy the ones they you can remove from the water. Instead of having taxes payers pay for your repairs!!!!!!!!!

yeah sure they are just going to come to yor house knock on the door and say sorry how can we help you, seriously you should not live so close to the river if you are not going to winterize your property, blah blah blah boo hoo. Don't we have better things to worry about? Seriously and people wonder why gas and electric and everything else is so high its beacuse of crap like this and frivolous lawsuits, who leaves docks out all winter anyways???Apparently people in GI who did not learn a lesson what 10 years ago, now thats stupidity

Jeff,
You have every right to have your dock repairs paid for by the New York State Power Authority. It took their intervention to cause the problem. If nature had it's way the ice would have flowed freely over the Falls.

Wow Ė a lot of people who know nothing about this. Itís history, NYPA did the same thing in 1985 and paid over 200 homeowners for their negligence. They have an ICE CONTROL MANUAL, they need to follow it! Not one of you would sit back and let GM or FORD or any business cause you damage or harm. NYPA is NOT paid with your taxes! Itís a business! I have over 50 years on this river, I was here before NYPA! I watched them build this marvel of hydo-power. Some of you need to get educated. Yes the LOWER river has had to deal with ice forever, thatís MOTHER NATURE. NYPA stopped the ICE not mother nature. The ICE FLUSHING CHANNEL is there for a reason. Reducing water diversions cost NYPA money, but it allows MOTHER NATURE to do her job. Business as usual! And fools supporting it!

You are the Dumb one, you have no education on this topic and therefore no right to comment. Opinions are like, well, you. Everybody has one!

Remember the Boston Tea Party? The founding Fathers would be proud of you, why don't you move to China. Or anywhere that people in power can dump on you.
