The Miami Conservancy District is a public
corporation established following the passage
of the Conservancy Act of Ohio in 1914. After
the 1913 flood inundated the Miami Valley,
local citizens were determined to avoid such
a disaster in the future. They initiated the
drive for a successful flood control plan,
and assumed the total construction and
maintenance costs without state or federal
aid. Englewood Dam is the largest of five
dams built through this project. In 1927 the
Miami Conservancy District was designated a
National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
