At Vischer Ferry Dam (Lock 7),the New York Power Authority (NYPA), working with the New York State Canal Corporation, began the seasonal removal of the remaining flashboards and fish deterrent system at Vischer Ferry on Wednesday. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced, an extended navigation season to assist boaters stranded by flood damage to portions of the Eastern Erie Canal. The water levels resulting from the removal of the flashboards will be sufficient for the passage of vessels during the extended navigation season that starts in late November and runs through mid-December. Typically, the navigation season on the Canal system runs from May 1 through November 15. The Vischer Ferry Dam (Lock 7) spans the Mohawk River between Vischer Ferry, Saratoga County, and Niskayuna, Schenectady County. Flashboards, used to regulate water levels at the hydroelectric power plants, seasonally raise the pond level upstream of the Crescent and Vischer Ferry Dams. Many of the flashboards were damaged by debris washed into the river during the flood. View photo
