Excerpt from Recollections of a Civil Engineer: Experiences in New York, Iowa, Nebraska, Dakota, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado

In June 1850, the writer commence] cng'neering on the Enlargement of the Erie Canal, in Wayne County New York. There was not a very large engineering force, the most of the work being in the villages of the county, and in building the new Clyde Lock, located about a mile west of the old one, and of the town; the lower or eastern level be ing lengthened that much. It was claimed at the time. That this change of location was to allow Gen'l William H. Ad ams to have the south end of his Sodus Canal at the lower level, but west of the old lock The old canal above the lock, which was five feet lift, was principally in cutting, as was most of the old Erie Canal. Near Clyde, the material was wasted in the rear of the towing-path which was there south of the canal, most of the town being on the opposite side. Preparatory to letting the contract for building this new piece of canal, test-pits were dug in this waste, show ing conclusively what kind of material was taken out in the construction of the old canal, but giving little intimation of what would be encountered in reducing the level five feet.
