Maybe the words from the Group's Founder can set things straight?

Seems she understands the message from the Canal Corporation, but STILL simply refuses to accept it. Still refuses to accept the supporting data, the supporting SEQR Environmental Review, and the Embankment Maintenance Gudebook that says Earthen Dams have standards and rules that Dam Owners have to comply with. She only believes her own "valued opinion"

And this Facebook group somehow still thinks Erie Canal Dam Trail USERS are the "primary Stakeholders", not those hundreds of Erie Canal Neighbors living below the danger, or the community beyond, who would bear the brunt of a flood from a sudden Canal Embankment breach.

Best statement that has come from this group is highlighted below.
