Flooding prevention recommendations released

Posted: Updated:
LAKE CHAMPLAIN -

An international commission to study flooding on Lake Champlain has released its recommendations.

Flooding back in the spring of 2011 caused tens of millions of dollars in damage.

The International Joint Commission recommends the U.S. and Canada invest $14 million over five years to assess possible flood measures for the basin, including both structural and non-structural options.

Other recommendations include studying how to keep new development away from flood areas and how to coordinate flood response across borders.
