$132.5 million contract awaeded for the East Branch Dam rehabilitation project

$132 million contract awarded for Elk County dam rehabilitation project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Friday that it awarded a $132.5 million contract for the East Branch Dam rehabilitation project in Elk County.

The work consists of construction of a seepage cutoff wall within the existing dam. Officials estimate the project will take nearly five years to complete. East Branch Dam is located on the East Branch Clarion River, 7.3 miles upstream of its confluence with the West Branch Clarion River at Johnsonburg, where they merge to form the Clarion River. The Clarion River is a major tributary of the Allegheny River.

East Branch Dam is part of the comprehensive flood damage reduction plan for the Ohio River Basin. East Branch Dam has a history of seepage-related problems, including a serious seepage episode in 1957 that required lowering the lake until repairs could be made.
