Save-Buckeye-Lake is an organization dedicated to protecting the residents in the Buckeye Lake region from unnecessary flooding and from wasteful government spending of taxpayer dollars on an unnecessary dam project.
Save-Buckeye-Lake's primary arguement is that the installation of the Sellers Point spillway in 1992 increased the risk of flooding in the area. The State has admitted this, but has yet to correct the problems associated with that installation. Now the State has indicated it is going to spend 100+ million dollars on a new dam that, by its own engineer's documents, is perfectly safe, and not correct the flooding problems caused by the spillway in the first place. In an exercise of financial responsbility, we would like to see the dam money spent on the flooding problem, not an unnecesary dam.
Save-Buckeye-Lake's primary goal is to establish a dialogue with the State, either, directly with the ODNR, or, through the Citizens Advisory Group, established by the ODNR in the FMSM study of flooding in the Sellers Point area, so that local residents and businesses in the Buckeye Lake area can play a role in their own future safety.
