Water in the Canal but sinkholes still need to be filled
From Easton to New Hope, the snow melt has watered many areas of the Canal, but there are still sinkholes that need to be filled before Lehigh River water can be let into the Canal. The sinkholes are located near the Eastern Sewerage Treatment Plant, by the Blue Moon garage south of Easton, and between Bridges 2 and 3 in Smithtown. As soon as Bi-State Construction can get equipment down the towpath without totally ruining it, the work will begin. In fact, it was scheduled to start on the day of the snowstorm.
The Canal from New Hope south to Bristol is brimful.
