You must have been looking in the wrong place
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Champlain_Canal>
It's part of the New York State Canal System

And it sent me down a rabbit hole hunting for information on the Champlain
Canal. I really love old canals and hadn't heard of that one. Very
interesting - like the old Erie, parts were widened and modernized, and
parts were routed around and abandoned.

I'm fascinated by abandoned, dry old locks.  Here's this huge stone
structure in the middle of nowhere... and at one point, 12 feet of water
ran through it.  We've got the Illinois and Michigan by us. Completely
abandoned, although parts have been restored as a linear park. But mostly
either dry or shallow and full of stagnant water, algae/duckweed, and
overgrowth.

If you view large you'll see the Champlain Canal in the background.  It
joins Lake Champlain to the Hudson River.

You can also see the Champlain Canal in the background of the Valcour
Fleet plaque as it flows through the village of Whitehall.
