Pequea boat ramps closing

PPL Holtwood plans closure of Pequea boat ramps for additional improvements.

The Pequea Boat Launch will be closed starting the week of Sept. 17 to dredge the Pequea Creek area, which will improve boating conditions during lower lake levels outside of the normal recreation season.

The dredging will take six to eight weeks, depending on the weather, and the work is expected to occur seven days a week.

“The dredging at Pequea is part of PPL’s commitment to provide and improve public recreation at this popular area for boating on the Susquehanna River,” said John M. Levitski, PPL’s regional community relations director for the Lancaster area.

Earlier this year, PPL Holtwood repaired the existing boat ramp and extended it farther out into the river, built a new one next to it and installed concrete planks to provide a gradual slope to improve the gradient as boats are placed into the river.
