Bad Creek Dam by the Delta Reservoir

Bad Creek begins between Co. Rd L and M west of Twsp. Rd 13 and flows east through Winameg by the home of Dresden Howard by where the Council Oak once stood then turning southeasterly toward Delta flowing by the west side of the Delta Reservoirs.  It meanders around the north and west side of Delta and then goes east along the south edge of town turning back southeasterly toward Texas, Ohio where it empties into the Maumee River.  It was said to be much bigger in the early days and used by the Indians and early settlers for travel.  It was called the Keeg Creek by the Indians and later named Bad Creek by the pioneers.


More History Along Bad Creek

The Village’s raw water supply comes from Bad Creek, a small stream that feeds into the Maumee River. Water from Bad creek is pumped into Reservoir #2, a 400 million gallon structure that was dedicated on April 28, 1985
