Great Waterways

Fortunately people began to realize the value of the canals for leisure, boating, fishing and walking.
The Great Lakes Waterway

The Great Lakes Waterway is a system of channels and canals that makes all of the Great Lakes accessible to oceangoing vessels. Its principal civil engineering components are the Welland Canal, bypassing Niagara Falls between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, and the Sault locks, bypassing the rapids of the St. Marys River between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, at Sault Sainte Marie. Maintained channels serve the St. Clair River and Detroit River between Lake Huron and Lake Ontario.
The Great Lakes Waterway is supplemented by the Saint Lawrence Seaway, which makes the Saint Lawrence River navigable from Montreal to Kingston, Ontario. The two waterways are often jointly referred to as the St. Lawrence Seaway. The Great Lakes Waterway is co-administered by Canada and the United States.
The Trent Severn Waterway - The Trent Severn Waterway is a water system of canals and lakes that allow boaters to travel the 387 kilometers of water from the Bay of Quinte at the east end of Lake Ontario up as far as Georgian Bay in Lake Huron. It takes roughly a week to travel the full length of the system by boat. You will pass through a number of historical areas and may embark on day trips at many of the ports of call to visit the towns and villages and points of interest along the way. 
Intracoastal Waterway
Intracoastal Waterway is a 4,800 km (3,000 mile) long recreational and commercial waterway along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. Some lengths of the ICW are natural and others are manmade.
The creation of the Intracoastal Waterway was first authorized by the United States Congress in 1919, and is maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers.
The waterway consists of two non-contiguous segments: the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, extending from Brownsville, Texas to Caraballe, Florida, and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, extending from Key West, Florida to Boston, Massachusetts. The two segments were originally intended to be connected via a canal link across northern Florida, but this was never completed due to environmental concerns.

Waterway restoration in the United Kingdom - At the present time, canal restoration in the UK is carried out by a mixture of volunteers and professionals working on a large verity of projects.
Duwamish Waterway - The lower 4½ miles of the Duwamish, an area known as the Lower Duwamish Waterway, has been the focus of many restoration efforts. A local public-private partnership called the Lower Duwamish Waterway Group, or LDWG, is one of the leaders in that accomplishment. 
Welland Canal - The Welland Canal is one of the world's greatest man made wonders. Although not as well known as the ancient Egyptian pyramids or as famous as it's neighbouring natural wonder Niagara Falls, the Welland Canal can be best described as simply amazing.
