Melka Marine, Inc. was mentioned in the “Around Town” section of the Frederick, MD news publication, “LOCAL”, for work being performed at the spillway at Carol Creek in Baker Park. 

Boat Ramps

Melka Marine, Inc. recently completed replacement of two boat ramps at Pohick Bay Regional Park for the No.Va Regional Park Auth.  The project involved removing concrete sections and rip rap of the existing ramp, dredging approximately 600 CY of river sediment, installation of gravel sub-base and installing 56 sections of ArmorFlex concrete mats measuring 4’ x 25’ and 8’ x25’ which extended the boat ramps about 45’ each.
