For the past year the ranger and maintenance staff at Alum Creek Lake has continued to set a high standard for water and boating safety education and promotion in the Huntington District. Alum Creek Lake is located in Delaware County, Ohio, north of the City of Columbus between I-71 and US 23. Alum Creek flows south joining Big Walnut Creek, in southeast Columbus, which joins the Scioto River. In addition to Flood Risk Management, Alum Creek Lake supplies water to the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio. Other benefits of the lake project are recreation, fish and wildlife management, and downstream water quality. The majority of the lake property is leased to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to operate as a State Park. The Corps of Engineers manages and operates a Visitor Center and the Below Dam Recreation Area, as well as the dam.
