The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Buffalo District has marked a submerged stone wall in Ashtabula, Ohio to remind boaters of its presence inside Ashtabula Harbor’s East Breakwater.
The 1,500 linear foot wall is now identified by nine red buoys with reflective tape, floating at water level approximately every 165 feet. The top of the submerged stone wall is approximately one to two feet below the water level. The wall creates an enclosed space not designed for boater access. For safety, boaters should stay in the bounds of the federal navigation channel until outside the harbor.
