In The Region:

An Ohio firm has been hired to work on 11 shoreline stabilization projects at Charles Mill and Seneca lakes this winter.

Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District approved Tucson of New Philadelphia to improve the condition of the man-made reservoirs. They face issues including erosion and run-off.

Darrin Lautenschleger is a spokesman for the district. He says Tucson’s work is estimated to cost about $650,000.

“They’ll actually be going in and doing the specific work related to improving them and shoring them up, which would included either/or a combination of hard engineering—a placement of rocks to stabilize a shoreline and other material—or bio engineering, which is plant material that is determined ... to shore up a shoreline area,” Lautenschleger said.

He says the district has spent about $3.5 million over the past three years on improving more than 4 miles of shorelines.

A similar project at Atwood Lake is expected to start in two years.
