In late October crews will begin work stabilizing Sanford Dam and restoring the Tittabawassee River back to its natural path. Stabilization efforts will also include removing the downstream spillway. We estimate this work will take place through June of 2022.
Property owners near Sanford Lake County Park and along Smith St. and W. Irish St. will notice heavy truck traffic while this work takes place. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to restore our lakes.
Thank you to the people who attended the third quarterly board meeting of Four Lakes Task Force on behalf of the Four Lakes Special Assessment District. The meeting was in-person at Meridian High School auditorium.
A packet of letters of support for the House and Senate dam repair and safety bills, signed by key public and private entities in the Four Lakes region of Gladwin and Midland counties, was sent to Michigan elected officials last week.
The letters expressed gratitude for their leadership and foresight in sponsoring the bills and reiterated the impact of the legislation if the funding is approved.
