Work on the removal of the Tait Station low dam is progressing nicely. At the end of October, the project was more than 75 percent complete and is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
The Ohio Department of Transportation is fully funding the $1.75 million project to remove the Tait Station low dam.
With the low dam removed, water will cascade over a riffle of stones, creating a more picturesque experience. Removal of the low dam:
- Will improve river safety and river access along the Great Miami Riverway.
- Is expected to improve water quality as well as habitat for fish, insects and birds that live in and along the river.
Watch a time-lapse video of the project through Sept. 30.
