Piedmont, Seneca, Tappan began rise to summer pool level

March 8, 2010

         HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The Corps of Engineers Huntington District began raising three reservoirs in the Muskingum area in Ohio to summer pool level. The reservoirs are Piedmont, Senecaville and Tappan.

        The Corps has been closely monitoring river levels at all of its lake projects to ensure that there is adequate storage for possible flood waters. These three projects will begin raising to summer pool effective immediately, but the process will be a gradual one. The district will continue to monitor the levels at all reservoirs and will adjust them as necessary.

        For more information, please contact the Huntington District Public Affairs Office at 304-399-5353.

       The Army Corps of Engineers operates the dams in the Muskingum River Watershed, while the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District manages much of the reservoir areas behind the dams for flood reduction, water conservation and recreation.
