Embankment Restoration Dam 3 - A Tale of Two Dams (cont)
« on: January 08, 2020, 08:33:58 pm »
We left off at the Culvert under Dam 3... and that nice new Inspection Path. I didn't walk down it, due to limited time and intermittent snow squalls, but did get a few good pictures. Most likely any uncleared sections along Dam 3 will become part of the new Canal Corporation Embankment Integrity PROGRAM that will fill in the blanks on Erie Canal safety, by making any and all areas along this NY State asset open to safety related earthen dam work, at the discretion of the Canal Corporation workload

Here's the rest of Dam 3 Pictures


UNCLEARED East End of Dam 3


Dam 3 Culvert Inspection Path

Now about halfway down Dam 3 from the 1833 house the rest of Dam 3 borders a rather large farmer's field and is cleared from here to the next overpass bridge at Marshall Rd


CLEARED eastern section of Dam 3



Dam 3 leads directly to Dam #4 which is one of the largest, longest and also one of the most unsafe in the entire original Embankment Restoration Project... see the next post
