Boating advisory for Pittsburgh area lifted

On Thursday morning, the National Weather Service lifted its recreational boating advisory for the lower Allegheny River and the warning for the Pittsburgh pool of the Allegheny and Ohio rivers is expected to removed Saturday morning.

According to the website, triblive.com, more than three inches of rain soaked the region in three days last week, causing significant runoff that sent fast-moving water that was riddled with debris on the Allegheny and into the Ohio River at Pittsburgh’s Point. This prompted the weather service to announce the advisory.

Additionally, because of the high levels, the Allegheny River Development Corp, which pays the Army Corps of Engineers to open the four locks in the area to recreational boaters, opted to keep them closed because of the high water. The locks will be reopen this weekend.
