Power has been restored to Horseshoe Point Park at Philpott Lake.
The park had been without power since a strong line of storms rolled through June 29, causing several thousand people across the commonwealth to lose power.
Here is the news release:
The Corps of Engineers Management Team at Philpott Lake is happy to announce that power has been restored to Horseshoe Point Park, and the park will be open for the weekend. “It’s an important weekend for our visitors, being the weekend following the 4th of July.” said Craig Rockwell, Philpott Lake Operations Project Manager.
Earl Wright, Assistant Operations Project Manager said, “Our maintenance crew is in there now assuring that the water tanks are full, the area is properly cleaned and the park is safe to re-open. We’ll be open by noon today!”
“We certainly want to thank AEP and their partners for all of their hard work restoring power to all those affected by the storm, and appreciate that they were finally able to get Horseshoe Point Park back online.” said Rockwell, concluding, “We know this has been a tremendous inconvenience to our visitors and our entire community. But, the storm is over and it’s time to come out and play!”
