A Walk Along a Safe Earthen Canal Embankment Dam in Holley NY
« on: September 04, 2021, 02:34:53 pm »
Because there is now a sea of misinformation being spread on Facebook, about what is going on with the Canal Corporation's Earthen Embankment Integrity Program (or EEIP as it's called), we have placed two videos on our Channel to show the truth about cleared safe embankments and those that have been cleared and have a restorative privacy barrier added. These two videos were filmed during an annual Canal Walk for Andi event, to bring awareness of rare disease called VEDS - Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, that took the life of a dear friend from Holley.

As you will see the Holley Dam is about 2300' long and ranges from 20' to as much as 74' tall where is crosses over Sandy Creek (East Branch).he first video is of a cleared, turf grass covered dam section that has few houses below. About halfway across the dam length a small neighborhood of houses start to appear, which also have a privacy screening barrier planted, between canal nerighbors and the Empire Trail "tourist" traveling the towpath.
