East Reservoir: Water level increasing after seepage detection

Posted on 8/6/2018 by Engineering in Portage Lakes

Water levels on East Reservoir were lowered several inches on July 27 to allow for investigation and observation of an area experiencing increased seepage through the dam. After a thorough inspection, ODNR determined that the continued progress of the soil mixing work addressed this area of concern and the lake can safely be returned to its pre-July 27 level. This action remains underway.
