Re: New Updates on the Holley North Dam Restoration

I'm trying to find where I saw this or heard this little Erie Canal tidbit

The Great Embankment in Pittsford is the largest earthen type dam on the canal, but not the highest. That I heard belongs to the Town of Holley. I seem to remember the GE was 73' and Holley was 78' tall, but not nearly as wide as the Great Embankment at 5280' wide.

I am not sure where it is though, have ask the CC., Canal Corporation.
