Hickory Log Dam
The Hickory Log Dam in Canton is waiting for some rain, so they can begin burning some of the timber they have cut around the dam. The Hickory Log Reservoir is going to help the City of Canton and Cobb County on the desperate water needs of Georgia. The dam was suppose to be built by the end of 2007 and now it looks like it will be completed sometime in 2008. The area of North Georgia could really use some rain and this Hickory Log Dam is going to help relieve a lot of our water concerns in Cherokee and Cobb County. That is if the dam can ever get completed. It’s funny how we need rain to help finish building the reservoir that is expected to be pretty big and help us during droughts.
Hickory Log Creek will be one of the sources of water that will begin filling the reservoir up. They are also going to be pumping water out of the Etowah River and this will help the reservoir to have a good supply of water. The Etowah River is down right now and it might stay that way for some time, until North Georgia starts to get an adequate amount of rain. You can see pictures of the Hickory Log Reservoir Dam on an earlier post I made in this blog. Hopefully for the residents of Canton and Marietta, the dam will get built soon and we can start backing up some of that precious water that is running down stream each day that passes.Click here for reuse options!
