Woodcock Creek Lake celebrates Golden Jubilee
Meadville Mayor Jaime Kinder gives a speech during Woodcock Creek Lake’s golden jubilee celebration in Saegertown, Pennsylvania, July 14, 2023. Community leaders and Corps of Engineers employees gathered on a summer morning to celebrate Woodcock Creek Dam’s 50th anniversary. The corps built Woodcock Creek Dam to reduce floods along the French Creek, saving communities such as Saegertown and Meadville from catastrophic flooding year after year and has prevented more than $38 million in flood damages since its construction in 1973.
