Notice to Mariners

Erie Canal – Canajoharie to Fort Plain

August 26, 2021

Mariners are advised that Erie Canal Locks E-14 (Canajoharie) to Lock E-15 (Fort Plain) that were closed in a previous Notice to Mariners have reopened to navigation.

Boaters should be aware of floating debris 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 and are being relocated by Canal forces.

Sections of the Canal system that remain closed at this time will reopen as conditions permit.

Charts showing the affected areas can be found at


Features along the Erie Canal are listed by mileage
