The National Park Service released estimates today that the flooding at the C&O Canal last month is going to end up costing close to $2.8 million worth of damage to the canal and surrounding era.

Costs include damage to Inlet Lock No.1 about one mile upstream from the District.

There is no word from the National Park Service about funding for the flood damage incurred by the Washington Harbour due to the C&O Canal bursting at this time.
