We’re excited to welcome two new senior project managers to the team – Ted Warren and Scott Dahl. Both have extensive experience working on large-scale projects. They will be on-site at the dams coordinating with vendors and ensuring the projects stay on time and within budget. Click the button below to see the entire operations team.

As crews begin to work on the Tobacco spillway, public fishing access will close for the duration of construction. Fishing access at Secord and Smallwood dams will also remain closed due to active construction. We look forward to welcoming anglers back to the four lakes once the construction sites are complete.

We've reached the final steps in acquiring the permit for Sanford Dam. The next steps are to get approval of the stream mitigation plan from EGLE (Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy). We responded to comments received during the public comment period and submitted them to EGLE.
We are likely to receive the permit in September based on EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) final review.
