High water causes Detroit marina closure

High water levels on the Detroit River have led the Windsor Port Authority to close Riverside Marina in Detroit for the rest of the boating season. Thirty-six boats have been displaced because of flooding at the docks.

“We were hopeful that water levels would eventually recede to more normal levels, but as July rolled in, there is no reduction in lake levels in sight,” port authority CEO Steve Salmons said in a statement. “We decided to put safety first by closing down docks and refunding our affected customers for the entire season.”

The port authority reportedly has refunded $42,000 to boaters.
