Here’s an excerpt:

After 48 hours of incessant rain, the creeks and rivers of Tuscarawas County spilled their banks on March 25, 1913.

Though the flood occurred 100 years ago, its impact continues to this day.

Locally, it led to creation of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District – a network of dams and reservoirs that control flooding in the state’s largest wholly contained watershed.
