The Express Mart convenience store and Sunoco gas station on White Bridge Road in Fleming is temporarily closed, though it was not clear Thursday for how long.
Donald Bowen, building inspector and code enforcement officer for the town of Fleming, said Express Mart is working to replace an old subsurface drainage system that takes care of parking lot runoff during heavy rains.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation had said in April that it was working with the store to address the drainage issues. In the past the store had pumped storm water runoff from the parking lot onto the lawn. The store abuts Owasco Lake and the outlet.
