Dam Removal Mishap Raises More Questions, Concerns

Questions continue to swirl as to why the Brown River Dam removal process on Grand Traverse County’s Boardman River resulted in a breach earlier this month.

The breach nearly drained the river above the dam, caused flood-damage to an estimated 53 homes downriver, deposited untold amounts of contaminated sediment downriver and, for some, called into question the wisdom of removing the dam in the first place.

(snip)

Charles Peterson, president of Peterson Machinery Sales, and a property owner on a dam impoundment, had submitted a letter of intent to Grand Traverse County in 2008 offering to return hydroelectric generating capacity to the Sabin and Boardman dams. The county rejected his proposal and moved forward with its dam removal agenda.


And we're supposed to trust these morons to erect windmills around our homes.
