Buckeye Lake: Clearing of all obstructions from old dam crest begins July 18th

Posted on 7/18/2016 by Engineering in Buckeye Lake Dam

Starting the week of July 18, crews will be clearing defects and obstructions from the crest of the old dam. This includes, but is not limited to: pavers, flagpoles, rocks, bushes and other vegetation. Anyone who has questions about personal property left on state property, please call Frank Nemet, Site Safety Supervisor for ASI between 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday at 719-248-1442.

The project schedule remains ahead of original estimates and Phase 2 engineering data collection is currently underway. Additional soilmix construction of the supporting buttress between the cutoff wall and the old dam is currently scheduled to begin early 2017. Construction is still scheduled to be completed sometime in 2019.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by reply email or by phone at 614-221-2800.


Please be aware: for your safety, crossing the fence to the Embankment Stability Berm is prohibited except for emergency responders and authorized personnel. Do no cross the fence for any reason.
