Here's a live cam view of the Oxbow Lake in Perinton, NY. The trees in the distance are along the Towpath Trail which runs North & South in this section. If you travel to the right side of the video stream on the Erie, the Village of Fairport is about 1 mile or so away. Travel away from the camera to the left, the Erie runs back towards Rochester & all points west.

Directly Below the Oxbow Dam is a residential area of Perinton known as Crystal Springs & Brentwood neighborhoods and also a large apartment complex named Oakwood Manor. There is also a small waterway called Cross Canal Brook.. which is most likely an active Erie Canal leak

Click on the link below to take a look. Once it opens click the image to start the live stream.

Check back in Early 2021 when Erie Canal Embankment work is restarted in this area to see the full transformation. We have created a rendition based on Erie Canal topography and surrounding large trees running along Cross Canal Brook... this is what the Oxbow Dam transformation may look like by 2022

And once the Dam is cleared in Phase 1 of Embankment Rehabilitation
