The Last Two Years
In the 1920s, the Edenville, Sanford, Smallwood and Secord Dams were built to generate electrical power, creating four lakes. While interstate electric grids and efficient large generating plants diminished the value of the hydroelectric facilities over the past nearly 100 years, the lakes have become a naturalized part of the environment and have created significant economic, recreational and social benefits to our community and the counties of Gladwin and Midland. The fisheries and ecosystems that have developed around these systems have been an asset to the communities and the state.
We know this is a personal and economic hardship for everyone, and we are working hard on many fronts to determine the most effective path forward to restore our lakes and dams. Nearly every member of the volunteer FLTF board is a lake property owner and each of us has been personally impacted by the dam breach. We care as much as you do about our lakes and see ourselves as the best advocates for the future of our communities. In regards to the Special Assessment District, we will not pursue implementing the assessment at this time.
