I know many in Rochester paint the ECNA as "the bad guy" right along with the NYS Canal Corporation and New York Power Authority... We are not, we are only sharing information we find, that shows the truth about Dam Safety and also how the NYS Canal system's many unsafe embankments will be repaired. If you don't like the message, sorry. But please, don't shoot the messengers...

If you wanted to know the score at the end of the initial NYSCC Earthen Embankment Restoration Project (EERP) and it's transition to the new Earthen Embankment Integrity PROGRAM (EEIP).. here it is:

EERP Cleared Embankments: 80 acres
EEIP Uncleared Embankments = 1420 acres


We don't make this stuff up...it's all out there online. Here's the minutes from the NYPA / Canal Corporation's September 2019 Joint Meeting

What you see is the final amount of work that was done for the original embankment clearing project...that stopped in Brockport.

What you don't see...yet, is the fact that a month BEFORE this report was made NY Power Authority was already looking for new trusted partners to work with on the next phase of their embankment safety program, the one that will continue where the first left off.

It's called the Earthen Embankment Integrity Program... and here's part of the presentation released in August 2019, looking for bidders

It covers Supplier Expectations



It outlines where the work will get done



And it spells out the size of the EEIP work



You only need to ask yourself one question... Do you think the New York Power Authority, and it's subsidiary the NY Canal Corporation, would go through all of this trouble if they thought for a moment the work would be stopped?

The NY Canal Earthen Embankment Integrity Program is a NEW reality all of NY State has to get used to... the Canal System is broken.

This is how it get's fixed...
