Readers pick Lake Ontario flooding as the biggest local business story of 2017 (access required)

The flooding that ravaged the coastline of Lake Ontario was the top local business story of 2017, according to a Rochester Business Journal survey of readers. The flooding began in April after three big rainstorms caused the lake level to rise to more than a foot and a half above normal. Many people blamed the flooding on the International Joint Commission’s Plan 2014, which regulates water levels and flows for Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.
