Brian Edgar is a Maintenance Mechanic at Piedmont Dam. Brian has gone above and beyond in his Maintenance and Flood Control duties and responsibilities. Brian has been the only maintenance worker at Piedmont Dam since November of 2021. Piedmont Dam is a 2 person project. Three of the 5 Lower Tuscarawas projects have had only 1 maintenance person for the past 5 months due to Military deployments and transfer of personnel. During this past winter Brian performed flood control duties as well as maintenance duties at 3 of the LT projects simultaneously due to other maintenance personnel being absent for training, leave etc. This past winter the MUR area had numerous flood event as well as ice jams and other flooding issues. While performing flood control operations at these 3 projects at all hours of the day and night Brian also met the maintenance requirements of those projects. Brian is always willing to assist all projects in the Muskingum Area with any needs they may have. He constantly exhibits the true meaning of being a TEAM player.
