NEWAYGO– Access will be closed to the duChemin Park boat launch at Croton Pond June 5 - 7 to allow a contractor crew working for Consumers Energy to safely work there.
That boat launch is near the Croton Dam. Signs will clearly mark that the site is closed while crews use the site to launch a barge being used to perform work upstream at Hardy Dam.
Two nearby boat launches will remain available at the Croton Township Campground on the east side of Croton Pond.
In addition, the closure does not impact the Muskegon River recreational access sites on the downstream side of Croton Dam.
Consumers Energy reminds visitors to safely and quickly exit the river if they hear the sirens that signal dangerous changes to flow conditions at hydro facilities.
