Recent Flooding in the Canandaigua Lake Watershed
In recent years, the Canandaigua Lake Watershed has experienced flooding associated with high intensity storm events. These floods caused damage to roads and private property. The Canandaigua Lake Watershed Council is working with local municipal agencies to build more flood resiliency in our infrastructure by replacing culverts and stabilizing road banks. The Council is also implementing projects throughout the watershed to help prevent future flooding, such as building rain gardens, restoring wetlands, and protecting open space.
