With water levels nearly 15 feel below normal, the New York Power Authority has closed the Hinckley Dam and Reservoir.  The NYPA said the extremely low water levels make conditions unsafe for boat launching.  The canoe and kayak launch area are still open.

The launch consists of concrete planks that extend 200 feet into the reservoir.  It is located along the north side of the reservoir on Route 365.

The NYPA said it will continue to monitor the water level in hopes of being able to re-open the launch.
