Susquehanna State Parkâ€™s Lapidum Boat Launching facility will be temporarily closed on or around October 9, with a projected reopening date of December 1, 2012, in order to remove excessive sediment from the launch area caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
â€śThis work is necessary in order to keep the facility in a safe and operable condition,â€ť said Park Manager Nicole Merrick. â€śEvery effort will be made to reopen the facility for public access as soon as possible.â€ť
Both launch ramps will be closed so that the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) can install a sediment control barrier during maintenance. This barrier will minimize any impact the site work may have on the environment.
