Emanent Domain at its best, sorry bout spelling
If the land is not used for the dam, It should be sold back to the remaining family members, at the price they were paid , if the remaining familys are still around, And they are, ask russ unger who grew up out there!
Any deviation from the original proposal, is in fact THEFT,
Take land for project, sit on land for 1/4 century,
dont do project, sell land for increased profit, screw the families who should of had a beauitful life living on THEIR own property, in the most historic place with the LOCKS of the UNION CANAL to play in and grow up around.
SHAME ON LEBANON COUNTY, apparently someone knows this plan, they knew what the army would say!

The village of Suedberg in which I grew up was decimated by the state's 1970s acquisition for the dam. Hearts were broken. Then, more than 20 years later, that plan was scrapped. However inviting and lovely the planned park amenities will be, they will never replace the memories of the natives who were displaced.

shame they did not dam it. It would be a thriving park for the public
