Boat Launch at Croton Pond to Close Three Days in May
NEWAYGO – Access will be closed to the duChemin Park boat launch at Croton Pond on May 17 and 18 and in the morning on May 22 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 17 to launch a barge and tugboat being used to perform work upstream at Hardy Dam. The half day closure on May 22 is to allow for the safe removal of the tugboat.
The closures do 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.
