Paul Rizzo Associates Draft Report on Buckeye Lake Dam Presented

Posted on 5/27/2015 by Engineering in Buckeye Lake Dam

Last week, ODNR staff participated in a presentation of a draft report performed by Paul Rizzo Associates concerning the existing conditions of Buckeye Lake Dam. ODNR’s response to this study was shared with central Ohio media and is summarized as follows:

"From what we've seen, their recommendation reduces the risk of overtopping, however potentially increases pressure on the dam, which can cause uncontrolled seepage and impact public safety," said Bethany McCorkle, communications spokeswoman for the ODNR. "The briefing did not offer a complete engineering analysis on the impact downstream."

The study was paid for by the Buckeye Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
