Workers have begun constructing a stability barrier in front of a deteriorating dam at Buckeye Lake.
The 4.1-mile earthen dam is nearly 180 years old and has been weakened by several hundred homes, docks and other structures built into it.

It plans to build a stability berm between the existing dam and the water by summer 2016.
