The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), Water Resources Division (WRD), will host a public hearing to discuss permitting for Secord and Smallwood lakes.
EGLE Public Hearing
Monday, September 26, 2022
Crews have been working on a pull-ahead project on Secord Dam that is being conducted prior to receiving a full construction permit.
Edenville Township and the Wixom Lake Improvement Board recently completed a pilot program to aerially spray evaluation plots on Sanford and Wixom lakes for the purpose of controlling growth of woody trees in the lakebeds.
Crews have been busy at Secord Dam. Here are some of the things they've been up to:
The Tittabawassee River is back on course through the Sanford Dam, thanks to work recently completed by Fisher Contracting to construct a berm across the breach channel. This restored 100% of the flow of the Tittabawassee River through the newly constructed weir. Watch the video below for drone footage of the work. This is an important next step in preparing for dam restoration.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Four Lakes Special Assessment District, Delegated Authority on Part 307 Legal Lake Level for the Counties of Midland and Gladwin, Michigan (the “District”), will hold a public hearing at 10:00 a.m., prevailing Eastern Time, at the Swanton Hall, located at 6460 N. Water Road, Edenville MI 48620 on the 23rd day of August, 2022.
Four Lakes Special Assessment District has applied for a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for dam safety booms and installation. The meeting will provide information on dam safety booms and their installation. The meeting will be conducted by the Delegated Authority and will provide an opportunity for interested persons to express their views on the proposed plan for safety boom installation.
There has been a flurry of activity at the Sanford Dam site over the past week keeping us on track for restoration. Continue reading to see photos.
