Our combined Erie Canal Embankment Maintenance Petitions have hit a milestone today - 500 signatures.

Please, if you live within a couple miles of the Erie Canal, on either the North side or the South, you should be signing this petition to insure your home & family are safe.

Clearing invasive vegetation of these earthen embankments makes them safe and also allows for better inspection by owners, NYS Canal Corporation.

And it also allows for closer inspection of trouble areas, like the one found on a recently cleared embankment near Gaines Basin, NY

This section of canal embankment has to be rebuilt, to mitigate excessive seepage found when they cleared the trees off in 2018, part of the Embankment Integrity work.
