Boom Time in Buffalo

Boom Time in Buffalo

A Statement from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo Division

BUFFALO, NY -- Placement of the 22 spans of the Lake Erie-Niagara River Ice Boom is about to start.

Each winter, since 1964, the Lake Erie-Niagara River Ice Boom has been installed near the outlet of Lake Erie to reduce the amount of ice entering the Niagara River. As a result of the boom, ice jams in the river and damage to shoreline property has been minimized while water flow for hydro-electric power production has been maintained.

Use of the ice boom is authorized by the International Joint Commission. Ownership as well as the cost of operating and maintaining the boom is shared equally by the New York Power Authority and Ontario Power Generation. Installation, operation and removal of the boom is done by the New York Power Authority and monitored on behalf of the International Joint Commission by its International Niagara Board of Control.

Pray for Peace Day: Dec. 18: Aman ki Asha

On December 18, wherever you are in the world, take out just thirty seconds to Pray for Peace Between India and Pakistan.

"Peace between India and Pakistan has been stubbornly elusive and yet tantalizingly inevitable. This vast subcontinent senses the bounties a peace dividend can deliver to its people yet it recoils from claiming a share.

The natural impulse would be to break out of the straitjacket of stated positions and embrace an ideal that promises sustained prosperity to the region, yet there is hesitation.

Schumer Puts Shoulder Behind Wheel To Remove Robert Moses parkway

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - The Robert Moses Parkway has long been viewed by some as a "concrete moat" between the city and its riverfront, and thus an impediment to potential economic development.

But for just as long, its proposed removal has been mired in red tape according Falls Mayor Paul Dyster.

"Sometimes people call it the 'Peace Bridge' of Niagara Falls," Dyster remarked, in reference to the now decade long debate over building a new international border crossing between Buffalo, NY and Fort Erie, Ont.
