TAPPAN LAKE – A portion of Tappan Lake is undergoing a seawall project intended to improve water quality and deter further erosion. Work includes constructing a 1,000-linear-foot vertical bulkhead seawall within the park.

“The project will improve safety and access for boaters and fishermen using the shoreline within Tappan Park,” said Darrin Lautenschleger, public affairs administrator for the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. “A primary role of the project is to improve water quality by arresting ongoing erosion of the peninsula and providing a pervious infiltration buffer strip behind the wall.”

More about the project can be found in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
