We’re just getting started!
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps), Pittsburgh District, is funded and tasked to look at the three reservoirs that operate in the Mahoning River Basin – Mosquito Creek Lake, Michael J. Kirwan Dam & Reservoir, and Berlin Lake - as well as the watershed as a whole to better understand the current needs, benefits and challenges within the region.
This undertaking will inform the Corps whether the operations of the reservoirs need to be changed to meet each reservoir’s authorized purposes while also investigating whether the authorization can be met while optimizing for other basin needs, opportunities and challenges. If it is determined an update is necessary, the Water Control Manual for each of the reservoirs will be updated.
Explore the website to learn more about the Water Control Manual update process and stay tuned to learn of opportunities for you to engage in this process.
