Low Water Levels Affect Recreation Craft at Locks

HUNTINGTON, WV…Because of low water levels, the Huntington District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will limit recreational boat lockage on the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers.

Until conditions abate, navigation locks on the Ohio (Meldahl, Greenup, R.C. Byrd, Racine, Belleville and Willow Island Locks) and Kanawha Rivers (Winfield, Marmet and London Locks) will only lock recreational craft on even-numbered hours (2, 4, etc.).
