Berlin Lake is a flood damage reduction project that protects the Mahoning River Valley. Since its completion in 1943, it has prevented flood damages estimated to be in excess of 2.6 billion dollars. Join Ranger James Frost for an in-depth presentation on the construction of the Berlin Dam, operations of a local U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project, and how Berlin Lake provides flood protection for the Mahoning Valley. This presentation will share numerous historical photos documenting the construction of the project from the early 1940’s.
