....and in the Morning on June 4 and 5
NEWAYGO – Access will be closed to the duChemin Park boat launch at Croton Pond on May 31 and June 1 and in the morning on June 4 and 5 until noon to allow Consumers Energy crews 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 beginning May 31 to launch a barge being used to perform work upstream at Hardy Dam. The half day closures on June 4 and 5 are to allow for the safe launch and removal of a tugboat.
The closures do not impact the Muskegon River recreational access sites on the downstream side of Croton Dam.
This activity had originally been scheduled for earlier in May but had been postponed due to higher flows in the Muskegon River.
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.
