From October 19-November 6, 57,000 cubic feet of debris was removed from Sanford Dam. Check out this video to see a time lapse of the process.
This effort is thanks to a grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Fisher Contracting, Sanford Village President Dolores Porte, volunteer Bill Gebo, and many other volunteers whose work cleaned the water and dam and reunited property owners with lost items.
We're also thankful for safety gear donations from Home Depot, Douglass, Three Rivers and Spicer that provided hardhats, visibility vests, etc. for volunteers.
A variety of unclaimed undamaged items were donated to nonprofits. Chippewa Nature Center received the large floating dock to be used at their wetlands pond, Little Forks Conservancy received six wooden dock sections to be used as boardwalk on their hiking trails, and Sanford Rebuild Fund received a few plastic watercraft and a wide variety of smaller items. Sanford Rebuild will post them on the Sanford Strong Facebook page to see if anyone claims anything.
