Title: The Transformation of 400' of Earthen Embankment Dam along the Erie Canal

Someone said Unsafe Embankment Dam, and others went to work to fix the problem.

The pictures show the transformation better than words.

Looking at the western lot line corner in 2010 vs 2018. Suddenly an Embankment Dam appeared.

These pictures show the best before & after... well still more to come.

And now our entire section of Embankment Dam, patched and ready for topsoil, contouring & grass seed.

So there are some saying this is a "devastation" and "environmentally unsound".. I put these pictures up to show it's just what an Embankment Dam should look like... once you get past the fact it actually is a Dam.
