Buckeye Lake: Proactive Water Control Management to Continue During Construction

Posted on 8/18/2017 by Dave Orr in Buckeye Lake Dam

ODNR will continue the practice of aggressive and proactive water control management during the construction period. Since the establishment of an interim summer pool, ODNR begins drawing down the lake to winter pool starting October 2nd. ODNR will follow this schedule again this year. Draw down to reach winter pool is expected to take approximately four (4) weeks or by the end of October- depending on weather, rainfall and other conditions. The stop-logs will be put back in place on March 1st and the lake will be allowed to refill to the interim summer pool, as done last year under the construction-period water control plan.
