The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is providing funding to install about 1500 feet of buried water pipeline that will replace an existing line that is leaking. In addition, frost-free hydrants will be replaced with heated water hydrants at all 15 RV sites. “These upgrades will provide a dependable, year-round water supply for campers and reduce the amount of water that is being wasted,” O’Neill said.
The boat ramp and boat preparation area at the Pink House Recreation Site will not be affected by the maintenance work and will remain open during this time. The ARRA funding creates jobs for private contractors, will reduce the amount of wasted water, and will allow an increasing number of visitors to use and enjoy the facilities at this site.
