Aqueduct between Buckeye Lake and Hebron Lake
Description: Photograph showing an aqueduct located near Buckeye Lake and Hebron Lake. An aqueduct is a structure that tranfers water from location to location. The caption beneath the photograph reads: "Aqueduct Between Buckeye Lake & Hebron." The attached description located on the back of the page reads: "PHOTOGRAPH No. 84.| HEBRON INVERTED SIPHON.| The present structure conveys the water from Buckeye Lake on its way to Hebron. This flume is temporary only and is so located that it impedes the flow of water of Licking River, as the structure just clears the top of the river Drift catches at this point and has a tendency to raise the water in said river causing damage to adjoining land owner. An inverted siphon should be built to replace said structure." This photograph is part of a series taken by the Board of the Ohio Department of Public Works to document the disrepair of the infrastructure of the Ohio and Erie Canal and Miami-Erie Canal systems in 1916, showing the physical condition of each structure. The Ohio Department of Public Works is one of the oldest departments of state government in continuous existence. Among its other duties, this department was charged with maintenance and administration of the Ohio & Erie and Miami-Erie Canals. View on Ohio Memory.
