Seawall project underway at Tappan Lake



News-Herald Staff Writer

TAPPAN LAKE – A portion of Tappan Lake is undergoing a seawall project intended to improve water quality and deter further erosion. Work includes constructing a 1,000-linear-foot vertical bulkhead seawall within the park.

β€œThe project will improve safety and access for boaters and fishermen using the shoreline within Tappan Park,” said Darrin Lautenschleger, public affairs administrator for the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. β€œA primary role of the project is to improve water quality by arresting ongoing erosion of the peninsula and providing a pervious infiltration buffer strip behind the wall.”

More about the project can be found in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
