Here's a story about a Dam in England, it too suffered from a lack of proper inspections and repairs like the Canal Dams

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-derbyshire-49220650



Weeds and cracks in the concrete spillway are the problem, caused by a complete lack of maintenance. Doesn't that sound familiar?

Many people are living directly under this dangerous dam!  Doesn't that sound familiar?

Hopefully, our Perinton/Fairport dam will be cleared of illegal vegetation shortly, so inspections and repairs can be made. If this can happen to a dam made of concrete, the Erie Canal's 100 year old Earthen Dams don't stand a chance of lasting without immediate repair.
