Sen. Charles Schumer wants the Army Corps of Engineers to make fixing the breakwall seperating Lake Ontario and Sodus Bay a priority. He’s also demanding the Army Corps to use sand from planned bay dredging to fill in the washout at Crescent Beach by next summer.
“They have the dollars to do this, they have to move up the priority,” said Schumer, D-New York. “They own it. What is the expression? You own it, you fix it? Yeah.”
The cost of repairs is estimated at about $2 million.
