L’Orignal Marina open at last for summer boating

Today is the official start of summer on the calendar and the marina at L’Orignal is now open for the summer boating season.

This year’s spring flooding of the Ottawa River pushed back the usual May long weekend opening for the marina. Even after the flood waters receded, the municipal marina remained closed until the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans could do an inspection of the causeway to make sure it was not damaged by the flooding.

 Now the marina is open in time for the start of summer and boat owners with summer leases on the docking sites are checking to make sure their berths are in proper shape, with all service connections ready, for the season.

 Reopening of the marina also bodes well for Canada Day tourism traffic for local businesses in L’Orignal
