Ottumwa Water and Hydro has contracted with Michels Engineering to install a new lower seal on the Northern Most Gate at the Hydro Electric Plant. In order to perform the work, the reservoir must be drained. Starting today November 3, 2022, the Reservoir will start to be dewatered. The area near the construction site will be closed to the public during this time. Once the work is complete the reservoir will be refilled. Residents are encouraged to avoid this area.
