Six projects on the Muskingum River will be located in the southeastern part of the Buckeye State on historic timber crib dams that still host the oldest hand-operated lock system in the United States. These projects, on dams owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, are designed to be visually compatible with the historic character of these dams.
