MASSENA -- The New York Power Authority will begin removing docks and buoys along the St. Lawrence River in the vicinity of its St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project. During the week of Oct. 18.

It is expected to take about two weeks, depending on river and weather conditions.

Docks and buoys will be removed from the following locations:

In the Town and Village of Waddington:

• Howard Park docks

• Whitaker Park docks

• Old Milk Factory buoys

In the Town of Massena:

• Massena Intake docks

• Hawkins Point dock & buoy

• South Channel buoy.

NYPA removes docks and buoys each fall to avert damage to boats, docks and buoys during winter’s sub-freezing temperatures.

NYPA will notify the public when the docks and buoys are to be reinstalled next spring.
