Canal Operation & Maintenance Manual for Embankments says it all

(1/1)

Doug K:
Just found this great publication to share on Canal Embankments from the US Dept of Interior... for those who understand there is a science to safety.

First a question.. Could this be the Erie Canal soon?



Some say no, some are being more cautious and making SURE it doesn't happen... that would be the NY Canal Corporation through their new Earthen Embankment Integrity Program or EEIP.

This is a great manual to read, it's from the Western Reclamation Bureau but could fit any Canal Operation, even one like the Erie.

Here's the Table of Contents for this manual:



It has some great illustrations of why Canal Embankments need to be maintained properly to prevent slope failures.



And there is plenty of information on how Embankment Remediation is done, and what equipment is used. Seems to support everything the NY Canal Corporation has been doing along our own Erie Canal.



The ECNA would suggest everyone take a good look at this one, it's tailor made to help understand what has to be done to protect the Erie Canal
