HOLTWOOD,Pa.  (March 8, 2012) – PPL Holtwood has begun work to build two new boat ramps and docks and expand the parking area at the Pequea Boat Launch on the Susquehanna River in LancasterCounty.


“PPL is committed, as part of its operating license for the Holtwood hydroelectric plant, to expanding recreational opportunities for the public along the Susquehanna River,” said John M. Levitski, PPL’s regional community relations director for the Lancaster area.

“This work will improve recreational facilities at Holtwood in time for the summer boating season,” he said. The project is expected to be finished by the middle of May.

For safety reasons, the Pequea boat ramp area and parking lot east of the Bridge Valley Road bridge will be closed to the public during construction. Work will be conducted weekdays, between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Preliminary work will include installing erosion and sedimentation controls, such as fencing and hay bales, to limit the effect of construction on neighboring properties.
