Pagination or Media Count:
The lock is located on the Erie Canal of the New York State Barge Canal system, south of the City of Rochester, and just west of the Village of Pittsford. It is near the intersection of Routes 252 and 65. This lock has a head of approximately 25 feet, and a storage volume of approximately 360 acre-feet. Therefore, it is classified as a small dam. Examination of available documents and a visual inspection of the dam did not reveal conditions which constitute an immediate hazard to human life or property. However, increased maintenance is required to correct concrete deterioration in the general lock area, of the spillway intake structure, and of the foot bridge which crosses the spillway discharge pool. Also, a detailed emergency operation-action plan and warning system should be developed and implemented.
