More good news for the Erie Canal.. it's Breathe of Life. https://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20181031_not8.html

The final determination from the DEC, regarding the "SEQR angle" that some have used in an attempt to stop the EERP Safety project has been made. The work being done IS repair of an existing Flood Control Structure, just like NYPA & the NY Canal Corp have said all along. Again, when science is behind you it's just a matter of time before the truth wins out.

This means the EERP Phase 1 work from Rochester EAST through Brighton, Pittsford, & Fairport WILL continue at some point in the near future. Most likely put them at least a year behind the rest of this Overall Section but at least those living in potential Flood Hazard Zones will start to get the safer Embankment Dams they need. EERP Phase 2 work on the westside is rolling along very well, check more posts in the ECNA Forum for more
