Re: Canal Drainage Schedule?

Rusty, did you manage to get your dock install done? Water-up happened on schedule, and so far no leaks in our dam.

Share a picture of your dock if you can, looking at whether to do a floating platform type dock or fixed myself. Always looking to compare designs.

Finally got around to working on the dock this past weekend. I was able to get the first of two 20' sections attached to the posts that I installed over the winter. The water was very high!

When installing the dock frame the water level suddenly raised about 10 inches within 3 seconds then gradually dropped back down. I'm several canal miles from the nearest lock but I'm assuming a lock was opened and a large slug of water propagated down the canal. I was just surprised how quickly and how much the water level rose.
