Couldn't help but notice what Ms. Agte said in her Facebook post:

The CC is currently doing work on that stretch, laying large rocks on the inboard slope. This work concerns me for a couple of reasons. First, no where did they post that this section of the trail is closed, what was it they said about transparency? And second, I couldn’t help but wonder if the lowered water level from lock 30 to Pittsford wasn’t because this project was anticipated

Not one statement about WHY the inboard slope of the canal embankment is being repaired?

Not one thought that the safety of the surrounding area may be improved with this embankment maintenance & repair?

And read Mike's statement from the caretakers of the NYS Canal System: The trail was raised above the flood zone in this section. It appears that the Empire Trail here didn't have enough "wave protection", and was below the flood zone high water level. So more rocks were added, and the trail itself was raised, more than likely to minimize annual flood damage.

Simply more whining about the lack of "transparency" and once again "not accepting" that the NYS Canal Corporation has lowered water due to unsafe earthen embankment conditions & seepage.

Why would this STCC group & its leader Ms. Agte, believe that the NY Canal Corporation should contact them before undertaking any work along the Erie Corridor?

Both NYPA and the Canal Corporation have already figured out that its best to "avoid all contact" with a social media group that constantly lies and misrepresents their Earthen Embankment Integrity work, and to "steer clear" of the group's leadership, who still can't figure out they are part of the "problem" in America these days.

What problem is that you ask?

The problem of delusional people, clinging to crazy "conspiracy theories", and doing it all in the name of "the environment".
