PICKAWAY – Ever curious about how a dam works? Why its there and how it’s operated? You can this summer with free tours at the local dam.
Deer Creek Dam is operated by the US Army of Engineers and controls the Deer Creek lake in its summer and winter pool. During the tour, the Army will explain why they keep water at levels differently throughout the year, what they do during heavy rains, and take you on a tour of the 8-story dam.
Deer Creek Dam is located at 21897 Deer Creek Rd in Mt Sterling Ohio and offers the tours by appointment. You can find more information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/564111448466145/564111468466143/?ref=newsfeed
