HOLTWOOD,Pa.  (June 14, 2012) – PPL Holtwood on Tuesday (6/19) morning will temporarily close the recently refurbished boat ramps at the Pequea Boat Launch on the Susquehanna River in Lancaster County to install permanent concrete planks.

 The ramps will be closed from 7 a.m. Tuesday (6/19) and will reopen at 7 p.m. on Wednesday (6/20). The concrete planks will provide a gradual slope, improving the gradient as boats are placed into the river.

 “The additional improvements at Pequea are part of PPL’s commitment, under its operating license for the Holtwood hydroelectric plant, to expand and improve recreational opportunities for the public along the Susquehanna River,” said John M. Levitski, PPL’s regional community relations director for the Lancaster area.

 Earlier this spring, PPL Holtwood repaired the existing boat ramp and extended it farther out into the river, and installed a new one next to it. After this boating season, PPL will dredge the Pequea Creek area and install additional parking to accommodate nearly 60 total spaces.

 PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), headquartered in Allentown, Pa., through its affiliated companies, owns or controls about 19,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States, sells energy in key U.S. markets, and delivers electricity and natural gas to about 10 million customers in the United States and the United Kingdom.
