Oman Creek boating access site opens

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) boating access site at Oman Creek has opened for the season.

Seasonal dredging operations were completed on May 5 and the site will be dredged weekly through September 29.

Dredging helps clear sediment washed into the creek and river mouth over the winter months, and maximizes the safe passage of boat traffic into and out of Lake Superior.

Money for the dredging was derived from waterways capital outlay funding, Michigan DNR said.

The boating access site is situated on Oman Creek, just upstream from Lake Superior at Little Girls Point in Gogebic County.
