Excerpt from Report of the Lake Erie and Ohio River Canal Board of Pennsylvania: June, 1917
Beginning at the mouth of the Beaver river in the State of Pennsylvania and running thence in the channel of said river miles to the junction of the Mahoning and Shenango rivers; thence in the channel of the Mahoning river miles to Niles, Ohio, with only such departures from said river channels as are necessary to eliminate unnavigable curves; thence following generally the valley of Mosquito creek about miles to a point in Trumbull county, approximately miles southwest of the village of Cortland, Ohio, which point is the southerly limit of the summit level of the pro posed canal; thence ih a course almost due north across said summit level a distance of miles to a point about 2 miles east of Rock creek, Ohio, which point is the northern limit of the summit level; thence by the valleys of Grand river and Indian creek about miles to a point at or near the mouth of Indian creek on Lake Erie, approximately 6% miles west of Ashtabula; making the total length of the route 101% miles.
On this route the elevation to be ascended from the mouth of the Beaver river to the summit level is 232 feet, and the descent from the summit level to the lake 327 feet.
The number of locks required will be 26, with lifts of from 10 to 30 feet.
