And as predicted, ANOTHER notice to mariners with the topic: Channel Obstruction

A good sized tree has fallen into the Erie Canal, over 60' tall in the Town of Ridgeway, that is blocking 40' of channelway.

So much for the thought that "trees aren't a problem" along Erie Canal Embankments.

New slogan for the Canal Corporation... "shade is cool, until TREES fall into the "sixty mile pool"
