Canal Water is Rising
July 30, 2014
The water temporarily reached a point several hundred yards south of Bridge 1 in Point Pleasant as a result of a surge caused by opening the bypass at Locks 15/16. Now its back to being on its way to Bridge 2.
Meanwhile, the water level south of the town of New Hope has been low for several days because masons are repairing the bottom of a stone wall at the Waterworks condos in New Hope. The Park staff opened the waste gates at Bowman’s Hill to lower the water, but now have closed them. The water is now rising.
