LIES LIES and more LIES!

They state- 
Congress required the Army Corps of Engineers to update their levee vegetation management policy in 2014 to "ensure that levee safety investments minimize environmental impacts and provide corresponding public safety benefits."

OK! Readers!  What is wrong with this STCC statement?

Here's a clue - it is just ONE word!

Can you spot it?

NO?

It's this  - LEVEE

The Perinton stretch of embankment has no levees. It does however have a large DAM called The Great Embankment.

We (the ECNA) have told them a dozen times, that all the experts do not consider 'The Great Embankment' to be a levee.
But they are in denial, because it simply does not fit in with their BS.

Here's how you tell. A levee is DRY 99% of it's life, it is only effective in time of flood. A DAM impounds water, has a phreatic line, and has tons of hydrostatic pressure against it for most of it's life.

Of course the answer can also be found on the BRAND NEW website for NYS Canal Integrity

https://www.nyscanalintegrity.org/



Where anyone, even the founder of a Facebook Group, can find the facts & truth about NYS Canal Embankments, and why they are classified as Earthen Dams.

That is if those spreading the "misinformation" on Facebook actually want to know the truth, and stop all the "lies" they are making up.

This article is, according to the NYPA, Senior Director, Public Engagement, New York State Canal Corporation, a TOTAL fabrication. They have no intention of operating the Erie Canal in this fashion.
