Notice to Mariners
Oswego, Central Erie and Cayuga/Seneca Canals
July 26, 2021
Mariners are advised that Oswego Canal Lock O-1 (Phoenix) to Lock O-8 (Oswego), Erie Canal Lock E-24 (Baldwinsville) to Lock E-25 (Mays Point) and Cayuga/Seneca Canal Lock C/S-1 (Cayuga) that were announced as closed in a previous Notice to Mariners will reopen to navigation at Noon today. The Erie Canal from Lock E-29 (Palmyra) to Lock E-30 (Macedon) remain closed to navigation until further notice. Updates will follow.
Boaters should be aware of floating debris that has been generated by recent heavy rainfall and proceed with caution, at a "No Wake" speed as some debris may be hard to see. Some buoys (Aids to Navigation) may be off station. Crews have been notified and are working to relocate the buoys.
Boaters should also verify overhead clearances at bridges before proceeding.
