Tomorrow (November 12) the public is invited to attend a webinar hosted by staff from the EGLE (Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy) Dam Safety Program who will provide detailed information related to the emergency order to repair Edenville Dam. Engineers from AECOM will also explain the project as well as alternatives that were considered.
This project is possible because of collaboration between FLTF and EGLE, and funding from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
Experts and engineers will share the next steps for repairing the Tobacco Spillway, the timeline for work to begin and its impact on property owners, and answer questions from the public.
Work is expected to begin this fall and be completed in time for the spring thaw when rain and snowmelt are expected to increase water levels.
