    I don't know if you folks know anything about this project, it will install three upground reservoirs in Delaware County, drawing water from the Scioto. They plan to impound water when the river is high, and release when the river is low. This will use an inflatable dam that can be raised and lowered, and the water will be pumped to the reservoirs.

    Some of you may recall there was anttempt a few years ago, to build another dam and lake on the Scioto north of oshay. That led to the formation of the Scioto River Valley Federation, who stopped the project.
