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.
