Tim, from what I read here in a regional mullet wrapper the Edenville Dam was cited for unsafe conditions and the owners were required to add additional spillways to accommodate flood waters back in 2018. Failure to do so was a loss of hydro generating license and being required to drop the pond level by nine feet. It also said both dams were in the process of changing ownership. Who is remiss in failure to follow up on the 2018 report? Looks like some preferential treatment may be going on. Whenever I was in MI from WWII days on, the Dam Site Inn next to the Sanford Dam was a regular stop that many looked forward to, haven't been there in years and likely it no longer exists. We hear from folks in MI regularly about the nice Governess up there. Wife's niece and nephew were in the process of remodeling a vacation home and due to lockdown they were not allowed to be there!
