Removal of the state’s boat launch docks will begin today as the boating season draws to a close, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced.
DEC manages 395 boat docks and fishing access facilities across the state in 57 of New York’s 62 counties, the majority which are located in the Adirondacks.
Dock removal will continue through mid-November. Generally, docks located more inland and at smaller sites are removed first. Weather conditions and available staff can impact these dates.
All DEC launches remain open to the public after docks are removed.
Details about DEC’s boat launches can be found online.
