Sinkholes north of Bridgeton Cause Canal to be Drained

Two sinkholes were discovered in the canal in the Nockamixon Cliffs area Fri, Nov 17th, which necessitated the de-watering of the canal in Bridgeton township. DCNR has begun repairs. According to Friends of the Delaware Canal’s Executive Director Susan Taylor, the plan is to use a “flowable fill” to expedite repairs. There is no timetable for re-watering.
