Rochester residents have watched our flood control system shrug off storms and high water that have pulverized downstream communities. But that's not by accident. Community leaders worked hard to protect the Med City, and they did it while reducing the water flow leaving Rochester. Today the river releases 18 percent less water, even during high water events, that it did in the 1970s. Find out how these changes happened in this article from the Rochester Post-Bulletin.
