To The Editor:
It will happen again and again. This area is now monsoon country. If the floodwater could be combined with fracking, we’d have gas coming out our ears.
The only practical solution, and it should have been done after the A&P was flooded in ’96, is to dig the entire Delaware River 10 feet deeper and, where it runs through Margaretville and Roxbury, make it twice as wide.
Use the mud and rocks to build a levee on both sides of the river through those villages. And, hire only American citizens to do the work with local residents given preference.
