Lake Ontario’s record water levels are flowing over into Irondequoit Bay affecting businesses.
Sutter’s Marina is one of them working to get back on their feet due to flooding. While a section of bay front where the marina sits is closed down for the foreseeable future, it is still open for business.
“Shutting down our one road on one side and the other is down to one lane," said Sutter's Marina Manager Alex Pelligra. "There are still ways to get down here. We’ve managed to stay above the rise with help from customers and other people who have extra pallets and docks and do best to make sure people stay dry heading out to their boats.”
Pelligra says their slots are normally full this time of year, but right now half of them are still unused.
The water that’s flowing over into the bay is also filling creeks affecting RT Masters Stone Company. That business is open, but the parking lot is flooded out.
