Anyone who’s lived around here long enough knows that flooding is part of life in lower Westchester. On Thursday, the County said it’s going to help us keep our heads above water. Flood control projects in Larchmont, Mamaroneck and New Rochelle are going to receive funding through a special $9 million county fund dedicated for stormwater management.

The municipalities are expected to pay the remaining costs.
