LaDue Reservoir Docks

The Wendell R. LaDue Reservoir in Akron, Ohio is formed from the damming of Black Brook and Bridge Creek.  It is a secondary reservoir to the Akron Water Supply system with its main purposes to control flooding in downstream areas and provide a quality source for drinking water treatment.  Hunting, fishing, and boating at LaDue Reservoir is permitted by both the City of Akron and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

LaDue Reservoir Floating Docks

In 1996 the City of Akron purchased Metal Craft non-truss floating docks for use at the Ranger’s Station on LaDue Reservoir.  Lightweight floating docks are great in applications where the water levels fluctuate on a regular basis.  Each dock section connects with either locking plates or hinges for rigid or loose connections.  Today our lightweight floating and truss frame floating docks are manufactured with polyethylene floatation making them environmentally friendly.  Lightweight floating docks are available in four standard widths, three standard lengths and three standard decking colors.  All sections are made from aluminum extrusions and feature a poly acrylic, non-skid finish aluminum decking for safe footing.  Additional accessories include dock handrail, dock ladders, dock cleats, corner bumpers and dock solar lights.  Contact Metal Craft Docks to discuss your project and see if Lightweight floating docks will work for you!
