Windmill Point boat ramp reopens

WINDMILL POINT—A sewage spill that closed the boat ramp at Windmill Point Marina, 40 Windjammer Lane in Lancaster County, on August 10 has been resolved and the ramp has been reopened, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

The overflow at the public boat ramp drained into the adjacent marina basin. Due to public health concerns, the boat ramp was closed.

Water tests collected August 15 by the VDH indicate the effects of the spill have dissipated and there is no longer an increased public health risk due to bacteria.
