Flooding on Cayuga Lake

The rain stopped on thursday, but the lake continued to rise on Sunday.that is because the Canal Corporation raised the flood gates Friday at the end of the lake in order to protect the Canal authority Engineers homes downstream. This is man-made flooding not natural. No other rivers/lakes are above flood stage in the area except Cayuga and the Seneca river. They posted that on Saturday and Sunday the levels were receding, that is a lie as anyone that lives on the lake knows. When is everyone going to stand up to the Canal Corporation and make them liable for the damage they are doing to the Cayuga Lake Basin and our homes.

Absoutely right, its worse than ever now. These fools never lowered it enough in the winter. WHO are these people that are doing this? They need to hear from us, are their names and positions listed anywhere?
