Low Head Dam Removal

The Tait Station Low Head Dam located in the Great Miami River in downtown Dayton, Ohio was constructed in 1935 to supply cooling water as part of coal-fired electric generating power plant (Tait Station). To increase recreational use, riverfront revitalization and eco-tourism Environmental Remediation Contractor was hired to remove the 83-year-old 569′ long low-head dam which was constructed of reinforced concrete with flashboards. 

It was 569 feet long & 30 feet wide and consisted of four different sections. After constructing a temporary causeway ERC removed & dewatered 10,000 CY of sediment followed by the demolition and debris removal of the low head dam. A constructed riffle was then installed followed by grading and the establishment of the river banks & inner-channel benches. The site was restored with seeding and planting of the disturbed areas.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
