MASSENA—New York Power Authority (NYPA) workers are scheduled to remove the docks and buoys along the St. Lawrence River, in the vicinity of NYPA’s St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project, beginning the week of Oct. 20.

Docks and buoys are scheduled to be removed from:

The Town and Village of Waddington

•              Howard Park Docks
•              Whitaker Park Docks
•              Old Milk Factory Buoys

Town of Massena

•              Massena Intake Docks
•              Hawkins Point Dock & Buoy
•              South Channel Buoy

The docks and buoys are removed to ensure the safety of workers and to avert damage to boats, docks and buoys during the sub-freezing temperatures of the winter months. NYPA officials will notify the public when the docks and buoys are to be reinstalled, which will be at some point in the spring of 2009.
