MASSENA—The New York Power Authority today announced its intention to remove the docks and buoys along the St. Lawrence River in the vicinity of its St.Lawrence-FDR Project, marking the official end to the boating season in the Towns of Waddington, Massena  and Louisville.

Beginning the week of October 15th, docks and buoys will be removed from:

The Town and Village of Waddington

  • Howard Park Docks

  • Whitaker Park Docks

  • Old Milk Factory Buoys

Town of Massena

  • Massena Intake Docks

  • Hawkins Point Dock & Buoy

  • South Channel Buoy

  • Massena Country Club

Town of Louisville

  •  Sand Island

This action is taken to ensure the safety of workers and to avert damage to boats, docks and buoys during spells of sub-freezing temperatures.  NYPA officials will notify the public when the docks and buoys are to be reinstalled, sometime in the spring of 2008.
