Let the water flow


Water is now flowing over the new labyrinth spillway that has been built to replace the old Lake Loramie spillway. The old spillway will be shut down in phases as the new spillway replaces it completely. An arched footbridge spans the top of the spillway. The old spillway will be under water that will extend past where it once ended alongside the new spillway. The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2018. Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman John Wisse said the decision to allow water through the new spillway had nothing to do with recent heavy rains.
