Hi!  I am the administrator of this forum and editor of

I live at 28 Erie Crescent Fairport, waterfront on the canal opposite the Oxbow Embankment Dam. My property is in a flood zone according to FEMA, yet those folks on the other side, who are 50 feet below me, are not.  Go figure!   ;)

Hello Mike... and all,
Brockport Resident on the Embankment Side about 40' away from the Erie Canal Trailway. Have about 400' of frontage with a house built before the Erie Canal turned into the current Barge Canal. With 1 confirmed leak (managed) & two more possible on our property I've taken what some might call a "keen interest" in a Safety Project right in my backyard like most here. Thanks for giving us a place to share.

Hi.  We live in Brockport - not adjacent to the bank, but in full view of it.  Thanks for getting this started.
