Rye homeowners want action on flooding
Homeowners in Rye want something done with urgency to fix flooding issues that turned local streets into rivers during Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
The key to addressing the problem could be to clean the Blind Brook, which has overflowed a number of times, and also a full-scale plan to fix the Bowman Avenue Dam.
Federal and state governments would have to approve the project, which would cost an estimated $50 million-$100 million. Indian Village section of Rye evacuated due to flooding
