State officials say work on a new Buckeye Lake dam should be completed by November and water levels should return to normal by next spring. 

The state estimates the cost of the project launched in 2015 will be 110 million dollars, 40 million below orignial projections. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the original earthen dam had a high likelihood of catastrophic failure.
