The Feeder Canal continues to serve
as a conduit to carry water to its summit level between Fort Edward
and Smith's Basin in the town of Kingsbury.
The Canal feeds water into, and is
an essential component of the Champlain Canal, a division of the New
York State Barge Canal System.
The 60-mile Champlain Canal, which
runs from Waterford to Whitehall is open for boat travel between
April and November.
The Feeder Canal is part of New
York State's 524 miles of canals and is maintained by the New York
State Thruway Authority.
The Office of Canals supports the
Feeder Canal Alliance in its plans for the canal's future
development and use.
