Seneca Marina to open for season on Friday, May 25

May 24, 2012

Seneca Marina will open for the 2012 season on Friday (May 25).

 

The marina, located at 16592 Lashley Rd. and just a short drive from the intersection of I-70 and I-77 near Cambridge,, has been undergoing extensive renovations and needed upgrades that will continue through the remainder of the year. The marina will be open seven days a week beginning at 7 a.m. each day.

 

Services that will be available beginning over the Memorial Day holiday weekend will include marine fuel sales (starting Saturday), limited docking and a variety of hot and cold food. A basic supply of fishing supplies and other amenities also will be available for sale.

 

The marina can be reached at its new telephone number of (740) 685-0015.

 

Visitors to the marina should use the lower entrance as renovations to the building are under way.

 

The marina will be operated by the staff of Seneca Lake Park under the direction of Dan Patrino. The campgrounds located next to the marina will remain open as usual as it also is operated by the park, which is a Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) recreational facility.

The MWCD, a political subdivision of the state, was organized in 1933 to develop and implement a plan to reduce flooding and conserve water for beneficial public uses in the Muskingum River Watershed, the largest wholly contained watershed in Ohio. Since their construction, the 16 reservoirs and dams in the MWCD region have been credited for saving nearly $10 billion worth of potential property damage from flooding, according to the federal government, as well as providing popular recreational opportunities that bolster the region’s economy. A significant portion of the reservoirs are managed by the MWCD and the dams are managed for flood-risk management by the federal U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
