Chautauqua Facilities and Services Damage at Docks

Institution docks have suffered some damage due to rising water levels. Docks crews and contractors are on site and working on repairs. Patrons who have boats or other watercraft at these docks are asked to look for an email with more information. Docks at Boys’ and Girls’ Club are the worst impacted because no boats or lifts are installed there. Institution staff will be attending to repairs there.
