Still waiting on the final grass covering but the Before & After pictures show what happens when unsafe Embankment Dams are restored back to recommended standards

If you folks haven't figured it out yet...what you ALL have been watching on the ECNA is simply what happens when an Erie Canal Dam is being repaired, seen first hand, from a very close "neighbors'" point of view.

No one can ignore ONE simple fact that when you look at the pictures you all say the same thing... "It looks like a Dam"

That folks is exactly what the National Dam Safety Laws intended...a recognition of DAMS among us and why communities need to recognize where they are and develop Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) to insure communities can react properly in the event of a breach or other flood related issue that people have with dams in their neighborhoods.
