Woodcock Creek Lake celebrates Golden Jubilee
A stone tablet was placed overtop the time capsule after it was buried at Woodcock Creek Lake in Saegertown, Pennsylvania, July 14, 2023. Community leaders and Corps of Engineers employees gathered on a summer morning to celebrate Woodcock Creek Dam’s 50th anniversary. The corps built Woodcock Creek Dam to reduce floods along the French Creek, saving communities such as Saegertown and Meadville from catastrophic flooding year after year and has prevented more than $38 million in flood damages since its construction in 1973. The time capsule will be opened at the dam’s 100th celebration in 2073. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District photo by Andrew Byrne)
