Beginning Friday, March 30, divers will be conducting an extensive inspection of the spillway apron at the Gavins Point Dam. The apron is the cement structure below the spillway that prevents water releases from digging out or "scouring" the area immediately below the spillway.
This inspection will take approximately one week and will include Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1.
During this time, boating and fishing will be prohibited in the spillway area. The area known as the "Fishing Wall" will be closed to fishing. For the safety of the divers boaters need to stay clear of the spillway. Individuals fishing will be prohibited from casting in the direction of the spillway.
