Lehigh River Water Flowing Southward in the Canal
July 27, 2020
On Friday, July 24, following the installation of the new drop gate at Groundhog Lock (Locks 22-23) in Raubsville, the Delaware Canal State Park staff opened the bypass gate in Easton allowing Lehigh River water to enter the Canal. On Saturday, the water had flowed to and past Groundhog Lock to the waste gate at Mueller’s Store. There the water was released to control the new inflow. Today, the waste gate at Mueller’s was closed, and the water has reached Riegelsville and beyond. At Durham, it will be released into the Delaware River until the completion of the Tinicum Aqueduct project.
