Mowing the Dams / Channels

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Dam Safety regulations require flood control dams to be mown at least once per year and preferably twice a year. Four of the dams currently are mown twice a year, the other four are mown by the land owners anywhere from one to three times a year.

Dam 5-D - erosion repair

A small gully had formed along the west abutment at Dam 5-D (West Branch Steele Ditch). The area was repaired to prevent serious damage to the dam.
