Some individuals along the Erie Canal have noticed that water levels still appear below normal.
While residents are used to seeing that during the winter months- as state crews work on necessary repairs- it’s less common during the summer months.
Certain boats, as result, have not been able to pass through.
It’s happening near the Macedon and Palmyra border, where the bank of a creek gave way last month. Crews have installed an aqua dam allowing them to put enough water between Locks 29 and 30 so vessels with less than 5 feet of draft can go through, according to News10NBC.
The Canal Corp. hopes that repairs are completed by this month.
