Hi Rusty,

Hope the Dock work is progressing as planned. I saw that same release  on the 2019 Navigation Schedule. All Boating Fees waived again this year, heard it may be through 2021. It sounds like the waiver of fees is turning into more boater traffic and overall Erie Usage.

As for the Re-Watering question, we have asked the Canal Corporation and are awaiting final date confirmation. Normally this is done in the third week of April from the Western end, but our conversations with Leadership at the NYCC is saying the re-water will be "delayed" due to the ongoing EERP Restoration as well as several other major repairs that are still ongoing.



They have stated the canal will be filled will be End of April or possibly into Early May in emails, and will have a confirmed date once they get updates from all construction leaders doing off-season work.

Ther ECNA will update this posting if we hear anything else.
