2017 Lock 10 Debris Removal Project-City of Zanesville
The City of Zanesville is requesting financial assistance to remove a significant log jam at the Lock 10 Dam on the Muskingum River. The log jam has caused erosion and sedimentation, which has threatened scouring along the Lock 10 Dam. The mass of the debris also presents a potential risk of a dam breach, which would lead to significant flooding.
The project will remove a significant log jam at Lock 10 on the Muskingum River. The removal of the debris will lessen the pressure on the Lock 10 Dam, improve the water quality of the Muskingum River, and enhance the scenic riverbank within the City of Zanesville.
