Submitted for review... Dam #2

Dam was was a highlight compared to Dam #2... rather boring, longer than #1, not nearly as steep but just as high. And the common denominator for Embankment Safety... there were several houses or neighborhoods located below the dam. The top of the water when the canal is full is about 20' above the roofs of these houses.

So two cleared EERP work zones, two water impounding structures that certainly qualify as Earthen Embankments Dams. Obviously more inspection friendly than when they were covered with trees, and as you can see... Erie Canal Neighbors who now have SAFE dams bordering their properties instead of flood hazard, overgrown, dangerous embankments.

But there is more... Dam #3 only has been halfway cleared...take a look
