The PA Fish and Boat Commission announced today a tentative agreement with the PA DEP for dredging the marina basin:
After an on-site scoping meeting earlier this week between PFBC, DEP, and Department of General Services Job Order Contracting, it was determined that the lake water levels have risen to a point that a modified dredging approach should be sufficient to allow for boating activity in the marina basin this season. The dredging activity· would primarily target the area where sediment accumulations are the most significant. DEP is agreeable to this approach with certain stipulations which the PFBC is currently working through. Due to the timing of receiving the cost estimate then procuring the dredging services the docks are tentatively planned for installation in mid-April which will likely be prior to the dredging activity.
Additional information will be provided as the situation develops.
I believe the Marina is a great asset to this area and should be kept open and updated. I also believe the west break wall should be built a little higher to keep out the gravel and trees. This would also save dredging cost.
