Dredging Project at Kanopolis State Park Improves Boat Access
The three-day excavation project will aid boaters launching in low water conditions
Low water levels at Kanopolis Reservoir have made all but one boat ramp unusable this spring. And that ramp, located at
Langley Point in , has been difficult for boaters due to shallow water. To improve boating conditions near the ramp, Kanopolis State Park staff have been overseeing a dredging operation. Kanopolis State Park
Crane Rental of Salina began dredging the boat ramp Tuesday, May 21, 2013 using a crawler crane and extendable fork lift.
“The boat ramp is usable as is,” said park manager Rick Martin, “but once we’ve excavated more material, launching a boat should become a lot easier.” Martin added that
will be in full working order for Memorial Day weekend.
