Boat barrier repaired at Smith Mountain Dam

Boaters warned to avoid intake side of Smith Mountain Dam

The floating boat barrier that keeps boaters away from Smith Mountain Lake’s forebay between the Bedford and Pittsylvania County sides of the 800-foot-wide gap was broken Friday night by high winds and waves.

Repair work was unsuccessful Saturday, but was repaired Sunday.

Appalachian Power thanked the Smith Mountain Marine Volunteer Fire Department for their assistance.

The barrier allows for flexing during normal plant operations and inclement weather.
