State Representative Scott Ryan (R-Granville Twp.) has announced that the State Controlling Board approved the release of $8,384,322 to help provide engineering and other necessary services for improving the Buckeye Lake dam.


Among other things, the funding will be used to offer a detailed assessment and construction administration to reduce the public safety risks currently prevalent at the dam. Other professional services offered under the contract include drilling, surveying and mapping, as well as public outreach, engineering and other rehabilitation projects at Buckeye Lake State Park.


"Hopefully, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer for those with safety, economic, and recreational interests in the Buckeye Lake region,” Ryan said. “Collaborative effort will be crucial to efficiently navigate the remaining challenges."


Westerville-based company Gannett Fleming Engineers and Architects, P.C. was selected to provide the engineering services to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for the Buckeye Lake dam improvement project, based on a qualification-based selection process.
