Zoom Flume draws complaints from neighbors over noise

Jan 29, 2016 7:00 am

Katie Kocijanski is reporting in The Daily Mail neighbors of the recreation venue Zoom Flume Water Park have expressed concerns about a proposed new ride. Details of the proposed CannonBowl ride were presented by park owner Denise Kerrigan to the Durham Town Board earlier this month. The major concern expressed by residents was the excessive noise in the park, which closes as late as 10 p.m. One neighbor called the noise level horrific. Another park neighbor -- William and Suzy Vogler -- have asked the town to conduct an environmental impact study to measure the park's impact on the entire community. Kerrigan said the resort portion of the business has been a part of the tourist economy in Greene County since the early 1800s, long before the neighbors moved in. She said the park takes resident complaints seriously, but she believes the neighbors are being unfair in their criticism. The public hearing will continue Tue., Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m. at Durham Town Hall. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
