Crews remove debris along Saw Mill River in Elmsford

Crews removed debris from several locations along the Saw Mill River today in the hopes that it will alleviate some of the flooding problems.

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says the goal is to clean up 17 main blockage areas along the river from the walking trail in Elmsford down to Woodland Lake in Ardsley.

Residents along Babbit Court in Elmsford say they're glad that something is being done to help curb flooding in their neighborhood. Babbit Court was one of the hardest-hit areas after Hurricane Irene swept through.

Feiner says the cleanup is just a temporary solution to the persistent flooding problem in the area.
