Saranac River Cleanup

Saranac River

Location: Saranac River from Adirondack Lane to Pine Street, City of Plattsburgh, County of Clinton, State of New York.

Details: The Saranac River cleanup project is entering a new phase starting Friday May 13, 2016. Preparations are under way to start constructing a river diverting dam in the area of the old Saranac Street Bridge (just upstream of the Plattsburgh Police Department).

The diverting dam will consist of steel sheeting and concrete blocks placed in the middle of the river and will be hazardous to anyone traveling on the river through that section. Prior to installing the diverting dam, signs and buoys will be placed in and around the river requiring people to exit in the area across from 90 Pine Street. This is a temporary but mandatory exit point. ALL tubers, boaters, kayakers, canoers, fishermen (all persons) are prohibited from trespassing within the river construction zone. This section of the river is fenced and posted "No Trespassing" as there is a risk of serious injury or death if these warnings are ignored.

The river cleanup I construction company has installed a set of stairs leading from the river's edge, up the bank to Pine Street (across from 90 Pine Street). Once out of the river you may walk down Pine Street to the Kennedy Bridge on Broad Street and re-enter the water.

Anyone violating these no trespassing provisions will subject themselves to arrest. Criminal Trespass in the third degree is a class "B" misdemeanor.
