If this group truly believes New York State, and the NY Canal Corporation would consider the ranting of part-time trail users about "lost shade" more important than the safety of Full-Time Neighbors living below these unsafe dams, they will always be beyond help understanding what truly is the issue here.

Fixing aging unsafe Earthen Dams in America isn't a PR stunt, it's about PUBLIC SAFETY.. You only need to look at the latest flood where communities said they never saw it coming. Most people have that much "common sense" to at least recognize this simple fact, unsafe dams need to be repaired.

Unless of course you are one of the few uncommon people fighting against public safety by simply denying that any issues exist, like these Stop the Canal Clear-Cut Co-founders and leaders.

I bet the people in Midland Michigan only wish they had Dam Owners like NYPA taking ownership of their neglected safety issues on their Embankment  Dams and trying to fix them.

I bet no one in Midland would appreciate a group fighting against fixing unsafe earthen dams, nor would they support a Facebook Group that promotes keeping dams in their unsafe condition.

Maybe Ms. Agte, Maier, and GouldThorpe should ask the people of Midland  if they believe the STCC is doing a public "service" or if they see it for what it really is, a dis-service to public & community  safety.
