Marmet Locks and Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is offering public tours at the Marmet Locks and Dam in Belle, West Virginia on June 4 in observation of National Dam Safety Awareness Day.

Tours will be offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day, and participants can meet at the Operations Building. Reservations are not required. Cameras are not permitted.

A news release from the Corps of Engineers says the tours will explain why and how the locks were built, how the dam is operated and the benefits the project brings to the local area.
