Boyce Receives Emergency Order to Perform Critical Repairs

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) issued an order to Boyce Hydro to "expedite modifications to the Tobacco spillway, which will lower the water level in the impoundment area to a safe height and restore downstream flow." The order also states that Boyce must divert the Tittabawassee River away from the breach through the dam to its former channel below the spillway. Additionally, sediment and debris in the river must be removed.

We appreciate EGLE taking action to address this. Stabilizing Edenville Dam must be done as soon as possible. EGLE engaged us on this matter and continues to keep us informed about its plans.
