OSWEGO — Lake Ontario water levels reached a record high Thursday, equaling the 248.95 feet mark set in May 2017.
The water has risen nearly daily for more than a month and the impact has been felt across the Lake Ontario shoreline. Local officials have been warning of the high water and potential for flooding for weeks, and the damage is taking a toll on property owners throughout the region.
The city of Oswego was forced to close Wright's Landing Marina on Thursday as a result of high water levels, saying the situation has become dangerous for boaters and pedestrians.
Mayor Billy Barlow issued an executive order Thursday to temporarily close the marina, saying "it is simply not a safe situation." Barlow encouraged residents to avoid the marina area altogether.
