I guess we have to go back to square one and define levees, dams and wooded slopes?

How many times do we have to do this for it to sink in?

https://eriecanalfacts.wordpress.com/2018/04/19/testimony-in-question-vegetation-on-dams/

To summarise this  --

Professor Donald H Gray (yes the expert witness who wrote testimony on behalf of the STCC for the court hearing) The man who, as you can see here, clearly states now -

I donít know of any earth dams where woody vegetation was purposely planted or allowed to grow on a face of the dam.  Such is not the case with earthen levees where vegetation can often be found growing on both the landward and water sides.

Does that put this to rest now?  Or do I need to find the other witness who recanted his original statement on this topic, Dr. David Rosgen?
