Embankment Dam Restoration in Medina - Dam 4
« on: January 08, 2020, 08:47:26 pm »
Dam 4 has a HIGH RISK Rating for Dam Safety, it is 7.5 acres of embankment, and is a continuous earthen embankment dam for 1.5 miles from Marshall Rd High Bridge to Medina Main St Lift Bridge. It was too long to walk the whole thing today due to weather, but I did get three nice pictures to share. It's long, has a couple culverts by the look on Google Maps and is about 16-20' tall so the entire canal, top to bottom, is above the ground level of surrounding areas.

Maybe Dam 4 was marked High Hazard due to the trees that used to be there, and it's size. In any case it is CLEARED...do you think it qualifies as a Dam?
