The New York Power Authority has officially assumed ownership and control over the NYS Canal System.  The planned event was originally part of a 2016 agreement where Gov. Cuomo proposed the move from the NY Thruway Authority which had maintained control of The Canal System since 1992.

Often this relationship had contentious elements as on occasion the Thruway Authority had been sued on the basis that it had taken toll money and diverted it towards the operation of the Canal System.

Town of Hempstead Beef’s up laws on illegal dumping in Canals and Harbors.

The Hempstead Town Board recently passed new regulations on houseboats to cut down on illegal discharge into local harbors and canals.

Under the regulations, violations carry up to a $1,000 fine for illegal sewage discharge from houseboats and sea planes.  Boat owners can now be fined daily for repeat violators.  The board voted 6-0 with Councilwomen Erin king Sweeney abstaining, to approve four resolutions for new fines.

Whether you’re in a kayak, 50’ cruiser or anything in-between you will find a unique boating experience on the Erie Canal.  With 55 locks, 16 lift bridges, more than 60 communities all on the 524 miles of navigable waterway that make up the Erie Canal System.  A boat trip on the Erie is something you won’t soon forget.  Whether you plan your trip to last a day, week or month the Erie will not disappoint.

The NYS Canal system is best understood when you break it down by regions.  The Erie at 363 miles long stretches from Waterford, just north of Albany to The Tonawanda’s, just east of Buffalo.  The modern version of the Erie which celebrated its centennial in 1915 combines the natural river sections of the Mohawk and Seneca Rivers, crosses Oneida Lake, the largest lake completely within NYS as well as the man-made sections that complete the system.  The scenery that you encounter along the way is as diverse as the waterway itself.  From dairy farms and apple orchids to long stretches of natural scenery that you make you forget you’re in NY.  You will also pass through bedroom communities of cities like Syracuse and Rochester.  One of the more interesting sections is a 4-mile-long stretch west of Rochester where the Canal is cut through rock, with rock walls on both sides of the canal take a minute to consider how this section was built virtually by hand in the early 1800’s!  When you arrive in Tonawanda, the current western terminus of the Canal, you could rent a car and visit Niagara Falls, or continue on the Niagara River 13 miles to the inner harbor of Buffalo where you have the opportunity to dock directly behind a Naval Destroyer at the only inland Naval Museum in the country.
