COLUMBUS - 

Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) today announced the state’s approval of a $5.6 million funding request by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to cover pre-construction costs for the second phase of the Buckeye Lake Dam rehabilitation project.

The project’s second phase will involve the construction of a new dam to replace the earthen dam, which received interim safety improvements during the first phase.

“Today is yet another milestone in our efforts to restore Buckeye Lake as one of Ohio's premier destinations for tourism and recreation,” said Balderson. “As progress is made, I will continue to work with local leaders to ensure that resources are available to support the project and the affected community."

Funds released by the Ohio Controlling Board will be used to support pre-construction efforts, including engineering, construction management, permit applications, public outreach, quality assurance testing and related services for the second phase of the Buckeye Lake project.
