Morris Canal Tour in Wayne / Pequannock on April 28th

By Christopher Lotito

---

I'll be hosting a tour of the remnants of the Morris Canal in Pequannock Township (tour steps off from Wayne, NJ) on April 28th 2012.  It's a great opportunity to get a look at some history and a confluence of waterways which can play a pivotal role in flooding in our region.  Moreover, if you haven't been able to keep up with all the information available in the past, it's an excellent chance to get some questions answered in a relatively short period of time. 

For those interested, tour is free to all and steps off from the corner of Jackson (Pompton Plains Crossroad) and Farmingdale in Wayne, NJ on Saturday April 28th at 10am.

I've written previously about the feeder dam structures and flooding in Pequannock on this site.  I have also presented research on the topic to the Pequannock Township Council, as discussed at length during March of 2012 in the Suburban Trends newspaper, and have also written several articles on the topic which are currently featured on Wikipedia. 

Hope to see you there!~Christopher LotitoEditor
