JONES TWP. – The completion date to the extensive East Branch Dam repair project has been pushed back to 2019, two years later than originally anticipated. The $280 million project entails constructing a full-length, full-depth concrete cutoff wall through the dam to reduce risk and restore the dam to normal operation.
On Wednesday morning representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District reported the delay during an East Branch Dam Safety Project Stakeholders meeting.
According to Mike Rattay, East Branch Dam project manager, the Corps is "not quite there" in the review process of cutoff wall proposals.
