As flood waters recede, new problems plague Lake Ontario homes

People living along the shore of Lake Ontario in New Haven are starting to finally see some of the flooding recede, but now they’re facing a new set of challenges the flooding leaves behind.

In addition to damaging property, residents have to also be aware of health concerns with the water too.

The Oswego County Health Department says to keep kids safe, tell them to avoid touching any dead animals nearby. Also, if their toys or stuffed animals have been in contact with the dirty water, throw them away or at least wash them out rigorously.

If you’re cleaning up around your home, avoid open toed shoes and always use gloves to avoid infections.
