We have become aware of a desire by some on Secord Lake, without proper engagement with the Secord Lake Association, to establish a special assessment district apart from the Four Lakes Task Force or even try and purchase or lease the dam from Boyce Hydro.
The May 19, 2020 Flood and the New Reality for the Four Lakes System
An embankment failed on the Edenville Dam. Sanford Dam failed because of excess water from the Edenville failure. All causes have yet to be determined. FERC ordered Boyce to form an independent investigation team and Michigan Dam Safety joined effort. We believe the investigation should be independent from Boyce. Smallwood and Secord Dams were lowered for inspection by order of FERC. Boyce’s inspection information has not been shared with counties or FLTF. The State of Michigan has challenged Boyce on its inadequacy of inspections and plans for stabilization of the Tobacco spillway. Boyce is behind on FERC order compliance.
