It's been almost TWO weeks now, since the NYS Canal Corporation released their new Earthen Embankment Integrity Program (EEIP) website. It has already had a few major changes made, to content, pictures, and information provided to Erie Canal Communities on their Earthen Dam Safety Program

And the public release of that new VISUAL & FACT-BASED website, has all but shut the conversation down inside a Facebook Group that has been opposing the Canal's Embankment Safety program with misinformation and "fake-facts".


Here's the most recent banter by the Group's founder, Ms E. Agte, and a few of the members who still haven't come to their senses and left this "conspiracy-riddled" group.





And at the bottom of the comments shown below, you can see images from the Stop the Canal Clear-cut page on Google.





It's not hard to wonder why this STCC Group's Founders are so upset by the new EEIP website, especially when you compare the two EEIP websites side by side. Here's a look at what has them so upset... which is only the REAL FACTS and TRUTH about Erie Canal Safety in New York State




Note just how VISUAL this new Embankment Integrity website is compared to the original website. The original was basically ALL TEXT, and some links to documents that showed images of unsafe dams, and those that were repaired.





Even the new EEIP FAQ page, Frequently Asked Questions, has changed, with direct links to answers, and more supporting evidence that Trees to NOT belong on Earthen Embankment Dams.

The Canal Corporation has even declared publicly, that one bit of FALSE information being spread on Facebook, is untrue... Canal Embankments are NOT LEVEES!!!





So it's no wonder that Ms. Agte is upset, after all, the Canal Corporation just told the 1000 members in her Facebook clan that they are all "wet" on what they believe about Canal Embankments, and that their "leadership" has led them the wrong way.

Well, that is if those people truly care about the sustainability and safety of the NYS Canal System and communities living below.


NEW MESSAGE FROM EEIP:

It's not about shade...
It's not a "clear-cut" event...
It's not about levees or leaves...


It is about making the treasured, historic, Erie Canal System in New York State, safer, for the next century.
