Dominion Virginia Power Leads Effort To Improve Popular Boat Ramp On The North Fork Of The Shenandoah River

"We're honored to participate and contribute to the enhancement of a lasting improvement within the community", said Bruce Beall, project manager for Zachry Industrial, "Our community investment strategy has always focused on lending our distinctive time, skills and resources towards upgrading the infrastructure of the communities we live in and this project afforded a special opportunity to accomplish this." 

Money for the ramp was provided through a $25,000 grant from the Dominion Foundation and from Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas, Inc. (MPSA) the firm that built the gas and steam turbine-generators for the power station. Other companies that contributed money were: Alstom, Burns & McDonnell, DN Tank, NiSource, Polytech Services, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, TAS, and SPX. 

Kevin Beddard, MPSA's general manager of Projects, Construction and Commissioning, said, "We would like to thank Dominion for spearheading the successful revitalization of the Riverton boat landing.  MPSA is honored to be part of this community effort to provide residents and visitors of Warren County with improved access to the Shenandoah River."

In addition to the money and volunteer labor, other partners provided materials or services.  Essroc Ready Mix and its parent company Essroc, provided more than $25,000 worth of rock and concrete. Other contributors were COMCAST and Pennoni Engineering.

One of the goals of the project was to ensure that it had a positive impact on the environment.  To that end, a lot of work was done to reduce the amount of runoff and silt flowing from the parking lot into the river.

"The two forks of the Shenandoah River offer some of the most beautiful paddling and boating in the state," said Jeff Kelble of Shenandoah Riverkeeper. "We have lots of access points to the river but many locations are in need of a facelift and work to reduce their runoff and impact to the river.  I'm thankful that Dominion and Zachry took the lead on this project, which now gives us a model design ensuring the most benefit to the public, to the river and to future projects."
