10. MUSKINGUM RIVER RESERVOIRS, OHIO Location.—The Muskingum River lies in southeastern Ohio and, with its tributaries, drains approximately 8,000 square miles. Its headwaters rise about 25 miles south of Lake Erie and it flows into the Ohio River at Marietta, Ohio, 172.2 miles below Pittsburgh, Pa.

Existing project. Under the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act the Public Works Administration made an allotment of $22,090,000 to aid in financing the construction of 14 reservoirs and for stream-channel improvement, hy straightening, widening, and deepening the stream and construction of walls and levees, and other works incident thereto, in the Muskingum Valley of eastern Ohio. The construction of 15 reservoirs was originally authorized by the Public Works Administration February 20, 1934, and one reservoir (Freeport) was eliminated and the stream-channel improvement of the Tuscarawas River at Massillon, Ohio,

authorized February 8, 1935 (amended official plan approved by the Chief of Engineers May 16, 1935). An additional amendment of the official plan, providing for a change in the right-of-way of the relocated Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in the Bolivar Reservoir, was approved by the Chief of Engineers August 19, 1936, and on May 13, 1937, the conservancy court further approved the elimination of stream-channel improvement of the Tuscarawas River at Massillon, Ohio, from the official plan (approved by the Chief of Engineers, July 9, 1937). A further amendment of the official plan to provide for the elimination of the Sandyville levee was approved by the Chief of Engineers February 2, 1938. Additional allotments of $3,500,000 and $1,600,000 were made on February 13, 1936, and July 23, 1937, respectively, by the Public Works Administration, to cover the increased costs of the reservoirs and local protective works and to cover the acquisition of land or flood easements from the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District of Ohio. The allotments were made on the application of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, which agreed to furnish rights-of-way, flowage rights, and other expenses not directly involved in the actual construction of the reservoirs and local protective works.

The Flood Control Act approved June 28, 1938, authorized and directed the Secretary of War to reimhurse the Muskingum Conservancy District in Ohio a sum not to exceed the actual expenditures made by it in acquiring lands, easements, and rights-ofway for reservoirs in the Muskingum River Valley, but such reimbursements shall not exceed $4,500,000, nor include any expenditures for lands, easements, and rights-of-way heretofore or hereafter purchased from said district by the United States.

The Flood Control Act approved August 11, 1939, contained the provision that the Muskingum River Valley dams and reservoirs as set forth in the official plan of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District shall be included in the flood-control plan for the Ohio River Basin authorized in section 4 of the Flood Control Act approved June 28, 1938, and that the provisions of section 2 of the latter act shall apply to those dams and reservoirs.

The total estimated cost of the project to the Government, excluding the cost to the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, is $36,090,000, of which $16,296,000 is for construction and $19,794,000 for lands and damages.

The project includes the construction of 14 reservoirs, the principal features of which are as follows:
