Portage Lakes: East Reservoir; Residents hear about construction plan

Posted on 5/16/2017 by Engineering in Portage Lakes

Nearly 200 area residents were joined by local officials and business owners May 11 to hear from ODNR and its contractors details of the upcoming dam improvements project at East Reservoir in Portage Lakes State Park. Design work is provided by Tetra Tech and construction will be handled by The Ruhlin Company.

Lake levels will not be changed as a result of construction, but may be adjusted to meet any dam safety needs. There will be no above ground dam wall or floodgate in the area of Aqua Blvd. near Burch’s Landing. Construction will begin this summer with substantial completion set for end of 2018 and final completion during Spring, 2019.
