The STCC group is touting 61 replies, at last check, so 593 of the other members in the Facebook group are not playing along. Seems like it's mostly newbies now, who are being duped like those other members were, over 4 years ago, when the group started.

And they haven't gotten anywhere, still unhappy that the answer is the same, No Trees on Earthen Dams

The total number of affected, adjacent homeowners, living below these earthen canal embankments was 328 on the original Embankment  Restoration Project. Two thirds west of Rochester, one third in Perinton/Pittsford/ Brighton.

And certainly that number is MUCH larger with the new EEIP program, that has expanded clearing from the original 50 odd acres to more that 1500 acres now with the NEW Canal Embankment work.

Does anyone believe that 60 Canal Trail walkers, whining about shade and photographic opportunity in a form letter, will stop a Canal Corporation Public Safety Embankment Program from clearing what's necessary to insure those 328+ canal neighbors living below unsafe earthen dams are made SAFE again?

They are in danger, from a NY State Property, called the Erie Canal... it has 100 miles of unsafe earthen dams.

It boggles the mind, it's like a group of Enviromental Morons who seem to believe that saving trees is somehow a better cause, than saving the people, canal neihbors, living below the danger that those trees are creating

Oh I forgot, this Facebook group simply DENIES the danger is real, so that makes them "right".

Again,  another group of people  on Facebook with a dubious message, and worse yet... the group leadership has questionable knowedge and credentials regarding embankment safety, dam regulations, and general public well-being.

Recipe for disaster?

You betcha
