PPL Holtwood Reopens Boat Ramps at Pequea
In time for Memorial Day weekend, PPL Holtwood on Thursday (5/24) will reopen the newly refurbished boat ramps at the Pequea Boat Launch on the Susquehanna River in Lancaster County.
“The improvements at Pequea are part of PPL’s commitment, under its operating license for the Holtwood hydroelectric plant, to expand recreational opportunities for the public along the Susquehanna River,” said John M. Levitski, PPL’s regional community relations director for the Lancaster area. “We’re pleased to reopen the Pequea boat launch area in time for the holiday weekend.”
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.
“The project, which was started in March, will improve the boating public’s enjoyment of the river at Holtwood as the summer boating season gets under way,” Levitski said.
PPL Corporation, headquartered in Allentown, Pa., 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.
