    Question I&M Canal in Lockport Drained

    Drove past the I&M Canal in Lockport this morning on the refinery side and it appears they have drained the I&M Canal between 2nd and 5th or 6th Streets. Not sure what's going on, no LE or police present, just construction workers. Just thought I'd put this out there as an FYI...
