The 0.65 MW project will be located at the existing Lake Milton dam, one of 15 dams on the Mahoning River, in Mahoning County, Ohio.
The Mahoning River is approximately 113 miles long, with 97 miles running through eastern Ohio, and the remainder running through western Pennsylvania. It joins the Shenango River in Pennsylvania to form the Beaver River, which flows into the Ohio River.
Lake Milton dam is a 760-foot-long, 54-foot-high concrete gravity dam that consists of a 650-foot-long, 58-foot-wide spillway, four 5-foot-wide by 7-foot long sluice gates for controlling outflows.
