FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LEWISTON—The fishing pier at the base of the New York Power Authority's Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant, the main generating facility at the Niagara Power Project, closes for the winter season today.  The pier will re-open once ice conditions clear in the spring.  However, the fish cleaning station will not re-open until the possibility of freezing temperatures has passed.
