Edward M. Cotter to go back on the Buffalo River to break up ice

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Edward M. Cotter will be back in the Buffalo River again on Wednesday, breaking up ice between the Michigan Ave. lift bridge and the Erie Basin Marina.

This could help prevent ice jams and flooding as rain arrives this weekend.

On Tuesday morning, crews were seen cutting triangles in the Buffalo River to prevent flooding.
