Water problems in the north
November 16, 2017
Earlier this week, the water levels in the northern end of the Canal had to be drawn down because the wickets of Groundhog Lock needed to be repaired . (Yes, “sticky wickets.”) The Park maintenance staff took care of them, but while the water was low, two sinkholes were discovered between Lock 20 and Indian Rock Inn. The Park will be using the new Menzi to excavate and pour flowable fill into the holes to plug them. Knock on wood – water should return late next week.
