Water Retreats From Point Pleasant
August 13, 2014
The water has retreated from Point Pleasant because of several factors related to water flow from Easton. The wickets at Locks 22/23 in Raubsville were severely clogged again. The Park maintenance staff did a major clean-out yesterday. The photos that follow are after clean-out shots.
Also the Park had to discontinue running water through the bypass at Lock 20 near the Nockamixon Cliffs. The condition of the bypass threatened to compromise Rt. 611 / River Road. The water will now be run through the cutout in the bulkhead at Lock 20. In order to do so, the water level to the north has to build up to the level of the cutout. This shouldn’t take too long.
