The Westside Erie Canal Waterway section opening – Brockport Dam Fills Up

News flash. Brockport NY, May 14, 2020 – The New York State Canalway is being filled from east to west through Brockport.



If you look at the Profile of the Canal System you can see that normally we get our water from Lake Erie. That water flow is bottled up right now, due to Lock 34/35 Maintenance Work that still needs to be done.



So the Canal Corporation figured out there’s more water to use. They can also fill from east to west from the Genesee River



And from our vantage point the kayaks can be launched sometime tomorrow, it's half full today, still filling from the East



Come to Brockport and see the Erie Canal filled and ready for your recreational enjoyment.

Thank you New York Power Authority for getting this water flowing

Thank you New York State Canal Corporation for clearing Brockport East Dam and making it safe again.

Summer is here…almost.

This came out yesterday, notice it lists the repair location & reason for the repairs. Some repair issues are about safety of the syatem structures, embankment repairs, sinkholes etc.

Anyone saying the Canal doesn't need serious repair work is ignoring what the owners of the canal have stated.
