TUPPER LAKE - One of the village's main thoroughfares reopened Monday morning after more than a week being closed due to flooding.
Demars Boulevard was cleaned up and fully reopened by 10 a.m.
As water slowly recedes, emergency officials decommissioned the emergency command post set up at the village offices. They said residents should contact the town or village offices if they need help with flooding issues.

Additionally, a wastewater pump station on Raquette River Drive that was rendered out of commission due to flooding is fixed and now operational. Customers serviced by that station may use their home facilities as normal. Portable toilets placed along the road for residents' use will soon be removed, officials announced.
Village police Sgt. Sean Stradley said he hopes Gull Pond Road in Piercefield will be opened today.
"So I guess we're on the upswing now," Stradley said. "Nice to see the water receding."
