Genesee Valley Reservoir.

Genesee Valley Reservoir.

Gov. Flower and a party of prominent Rochesterians went to Mount Morris, N. Y., Tuesday by special train to look over the site for the proposed Genesee water storage reservoir. There were three inches of snow on the ground in the Genesee valley.

The Governor and the party were tendered an informal reception at the home of Norman A. Seymour at Mount Morris. All of the State officials present seemed favorably impressed with what they had seen. Gov. Flower said: “You have great possibilities for successful storing of water up here. I assure you that I am most favorably impressed with what I have seen. The construction of a dam on any of the sites would be a great thing, not only for Rochester but for Mount Morris, Genesee and these other charming villages scattered about through this grand valley. I don’t care to commit myself altogether, but this I will say, I am in favor of the scheme. I believe that it will be a great thing for Rochester and the towns that I have named. What is a great thing for them is a great thing for the State.”
