Opekiska Lock and Dam Reopens for Recreational Boater Use

The Opekiska Lock and Dam has reopened for recreational use.

The dam was closed in 2012 because of cost issues but has reopened for recreational boating.

Opekiska finished construction and was officially opened in 1964. The lock and dam is in Lowsville, outside of Morgantown, on the Monongahela River.
