Posted on 7/19/2019 by Engineering in Portage Lakes

On July 17, Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Parks & Watercraft staff detected a malfunction in the East Reservoir gatehouse during routine operations. In response to the issue, ODNR will isolate and lower Cat Swamp by 2–3 feet starting Friday, July 19, until inspections and maintenance are completed. East Reservoir lake will remain at normal levels. ODNR will provide updates as necessary.
