Please see the photos below to get a better idea of the impact of the recent flooding on our shores. Hover over images to preview in color. Click on any image to enlarge. Make a note of the submerged docks, the sandbags that are “highlighting” the perimeter of Sodus Point, standing water on the lawns, pumps pumping water back to the bay, the absence of boats in the water, the docks still sitting in the parking lots… what else do you notice in these pictures? Note, once you click on the image to enlarge it, a gallery window will open and you can browse through 50 images of Sodus Point.

Historic pictures of Sodus Point from the Air - marinas, restaurants... We are happy to have them and share with you.

The town of Greece created an official petition to overturn Plan 2014 from the International Joint Commission (IJC).

If this Petition gets 100,000 signatures, the White House has to respond to it. It is a tool to get attention from the policy makers and overturn or modify the disastrous Plan 2014.

The Petition may or may not be the answer, but if enough people sign it, it could be a good tool for us, politicians, and others who are trying to overturn or amend PLAN 2014. Please Sign This Petition

I will SIGN the Petition
