If you don't understand this, then please BE QUIET!

Here is why most people should simply listen to the Experts on DAM ENGINEERING.

If you can't follow the math used here, then you shouldn't be expressing opinions about the safety of our embankment dams! Leave it to trained dam engineers, like those employed by the canal authority.

Isn't the real problem more like this?

Those who oppose erie canal embankment work are focusing on the trail & trail scenery while those who support this maintenance work are focused on unsafe earthen dams, and the safety of those living below them?

If someone won't acknowledge public safety, or have concern for their community, they probably have no sense, let alone the common type.

And unfortunately people with zero understanding or knowledge tend to be the ones that consider themselves experts
