 Chapter 18: The Chenango Canal Extension
The termination of the Chenango canal in Binghamton was at the junction of the Chenango and Susquehanna rivers.
To continue the canal along the north side of the Susquehanna, the crossing of the Chenango became necessary and two plans were devised to accomplish this; one by carrying the canal over on an aqueduct, the other by building a dam across the river to afford sufficient depth for floating boats.
The north line (passing the Chenango river with an aqueduct) was 39 15/80 miles long, had seventy-seven feet of lockage and was estimated to cost $788,149.68.

 Chapter 17: The Chenango Canal
The Chenango river can be made boatable to its source, and by a short canal, the expense of which would be comparatively trifling, may be united with the waters of the Oneida creek, which leads directly into the Erie canal.
The first well-defined, effort for the canal took the form of a petition to the Legislature of 1824 from the inhabitants of Chenango county, urging the passage of a law authorizing the survey of a canal route from the Erie along the valley of the Chenango to the Susquehanna river.
The proposed Chenango canal, as surveyed, extended from Chenango Point, on the Susquehanna river, to the Erie canal at Whitesboro, via Norwich; it was ninety miles long, with a total lockage of 1,050 feet; it required six miles of feeders and was estimated to cost $715,478.

The rocks were a little slimy, and I know very well that the river's pretty polluted, and maybe there's radioactivity in it, or raw sewage, but it didn't seem excessively disgusting, so, you know, what the hell -- we decided it would make a nice swim...
But drifting across the River, under a full moon, I could not help but feel very much as if there are indeed, higher forces.
Hence the name Chenango, I guess: "peaceful." Norman insisted we'd only had to swim about twenty yards, total, because the water level is low this time of year.
