The state has asked hundreds of homeowners on the deteriorated dam at Buckeye Lake to remove their docks and other structures, such as decks, in preparation for construction of a replacement barrier. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has said the 4.1 mile earthen dam is at risk of failing because itâ€™s been weakened by about 370 homes and other structures built into it. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says docks not removed at the ownersâ€™ expense by November 1st will be dismantled by construction crews and stored for two months in case owners want to claim those materials. A department spokeswoman says that would be considered part of the projectâ€™s cost and owners wonâ€™t be charged, but the state canâ€™t guarantee the condition of the dismantled materials.
