McKownville residents preparing for potential flooding

MCKOWNVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Those who live near Stuyvesant Plaza are gearing up for a wet weekend. 

Many who live in neighborhoods in the area, which traditionally flood, are making preparations for the storm. 

There’s also a $3.25 million project to help mitigate flooding in the heavily commercial area. 

Some residents nearby say the project doesn’t address problems in their neighborhood and are ignoring the century’s old drainage system which has caused issues in previous years.
