Right on cue, again, the NYS Canal Corporation has their Earthen Embankment Restoration Project (EERP) Field Supervisor on the job, directing their Partner/Supplier Wayside Nursery from Lockport, as the final phase of the EERP dam clearing continues where is left off. The embankment marking process is closely followed by men, women and machines that start planting according the finalized EERP Barrier Plan that was created by the NYS Canal Corporation and CH Associates, their environmental design partner.

Below are pictures of the process of digging holes, planting the natural privacy screening plants that are allowed
