Interesting you should mention the Slope Ratio... this is what the NYS Canal Corporation has stated they will follow, the NYS DEC Guidelines from their website.

According to this there are TWO slope angles allowed... 2:1 and 3:1, the latter is preferred as it is less steep and easier to mow. The steeper slope comes with a "condition" if it is used. If the steeper grade is used, there MUST be a Tow drain installed to collect phreatic & run-off water located at the Toe of the embankment dam's outboard slope.

This just might help MANY canal neighbors that have water issues, we fixed our own Toe drain and our sump pump has not been used since.
