Notice to Marines
Erie Canal – Reopening Update
June 22, 2019
Mariners are advised that the Erie Canal from to Lock E-2 Waterford to Lock E-22 New London has reopened to navigation. At this point the entire eastern Erie Canal is open to navigation.
Mariners are also advised that Erie Canal Lock E-23 Brewerton to Lock E-28A Lyons and to Lock C/S-1 Cayuga and the entire Oswego Canal from Lock O-1 Phoenix to Lock O-8 Oswego remain closed due to high water levels and heavy flows from recent heavy rainfall, until further notice.
Boaters may still use Lock E-23 Brewerton to access Oneida Lake.
Mariners are reminded that they may encounter debris, high water, high current, and buoys off station in any sections recently reopened after a high-water event.
Updates will follow.
