ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A new breakwall design could help homeowners along the Lake Ontario shoreline in Greece prevent heavy flooding.

The residents say their breakwall broke over the summer when enormous waves smashes into it.

Pepsy Kettavong has designed a new structure with curved walls to toss the water back out into the lake and knock down incoming waves.

The president of the Crescent Beach Association presented the newly designed model Friday morning.

If approved, construction will begin this year.
