Default Hoover, Alum, Delaware and the new upground reservoir

Was flying home from somewhere November 9th and snapped these pictures.

This is I believe the new upground reservoir for Columbus.

I had to downsize them so much to fit on the site. An iphone takes some decent pictures from a plane.
Not so good for dark or evening pictures.

By the way, I was in New Albany last week for a few days for work. What's with all the white fences everywhere? Who pays for and maintains them?

Also, I hit up Hoover Friday afternoon and the way home. I never been there. That's a really nice place. I kept thinking of Rick Seevers and his beloved Hoover and his drain plug necklace. Now I can see why.
What a jewel in the middle of chaos.

Those white fences are paid for by the New Albany company (les wexner's company).

Actually, the white fences are part of NA resident's taxes.

Isn't it odd how, when the light is right, you can see it reflected in every body of water, down to the very smallest? Every farm pond or stream, even little puddles in fields shine up at you.

I worked on that project and it will not be open to the public unless they have changed there minds on the reservoir. It's approximately 800 acres in size. Mushi on this site will have more input about details.

He's right, not open to public. I think that's a quarry in the photo. The upground had water in it already.

Take Google maps to Prospect, then go south and west. Look for a big area of bare ground. The image was taken before there was water; if you zoom all the way in, you can see a line of guys pulling the liner into place.

You can sometimes see them working the inflatable dam on the Prospect gauge, it now shows sharp rises or drops that it never had before.

Thanks FOSR. I found the actual upground. My picture is actually a quarry.
It is just west of Delaware between SR 36 and SR 42.
I looking through my pics now to see if I have one of the actual upground.

Here's a perspective where the quarry is. That isn't Delaware Reservoir either. It's the O'Shaughnessy Reservoir. The upground is under the plane and I wasn't able to get a pic.
