About the tuscarawas river

The Tuscarawas River is a 129-mile-long tributary of the Muskingum River located in eastern Ohio. The river has a rich history and played a significant role in the development of the area. The river originates in Stark County and flows through several cities, including Massillon, Canton, Dover, and New Philadelphia. The Tuscarawas River is a vital source of water for irrigation, municipal, and industrial purposes, and it provides recreational opportunities such as boating and fishing. The river is dammed at several points, including at Bolivar Dam, which forms the 2,350-acre Zoar Lake, and at Dover Dam, which creates the 1,200-acre Atwood Lake. These reservoirs provide flood control, water supply, and recreational opportunities for the region. The river and its tributaries also support agriculture, with farms and orchards located throughout the area.
