Delaware & Hudson CanalThe company used the contour of the land to create basins which were usually located above or below locks. Basins were wide spots in the canal, large enough for boats to load or unload cargo, stop for the night, and attend to minor repairs. Even more important, they functioned as mini-reservoirs so that canal water lost through drought or leakages could be replaced by water held in the basins.
