Erie Canal Brockport

Lesson learned, right on the Erie Canal. Almost 2 months since this "land" washed out. From where this breach was located, it's part of the original Erie Canal near the Lock 30/29 pool.

Almost 2 months to repair the Embankment, with a new coffee dam. Look how much earth it took to replace what washed away:  about 2,500 cubic yards of granular fill and 190 ft. of steel sheet piling
