WATERBURY — Green Mountain Power will be installing concrete ramps at two boat launches at the Waterbury Reservoir next month.

According to a news release, the utility will install a ramp at the Waterbury Dam launch Feb. 4 through Feb. 15. It will also install a ramp at the Blush Hill boat launch Feb. 18 through March 9. The work is part of the utility’s commitment to improving the Waterbury Dam and surrounding areas.

During construction, each location will be closed to the public for safety reasons.

Every winter, the water level of the reservoir is drawn down to create space for spring run-off, according to the release. When the water levels dip below the bottom of the ramps in February, the pre-cast concrete panels will be installed.

Long-term maintenance and management will be performed by the state Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation.
