Dredging begins in Mamaroneck to curb flooding woes

Dredging and silt removal began yesterday in Mamaroneck as part of an effort to stop flooding in areas around the Mamaroneck River.

Crews have already removed 3-4 feet of dirt from the river bed and expect to be working on the project for the next two to four weeks.

Residents in the Sound Shore community struggle with flooding when the river waters rise, and village officials hope the silt removal will solve the soggy problem.
