Hello! I am hoping there is someone here who can help me get started on a project to save the dam in Red Ridge where the train used to go through on the way to Freda Park. The Mi DEQ has served Stanton Township with an order to "Remove, Replace or Rebuild" the wooden crib dam built across the Salmon Trout Creek. I would appreciate anyones thoughts on who to contact, ideas on what we could do with the site, where to generate funds for such a project. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You! Cindy Miller, Stanton Township
I have loved that dam for more than 20 years, and I would love to help. Please let me know what I can do.
Hi Margaret! thanks for your support! As of now we are still in planning stages, we have made initial contacts with MTU's civil engineers and the Historical Preservation office. As we get more of a plan, I will keep Kevin updated and you can follow it here- he has been most generous! For now, I need your ideas, what you wish to happen there. Cindy
Every time I'm in the Copper Country, I drive out and photograph the dam, the beautiful shoreline of Lake Superior ... I think the whole area is under utilized. Good luck.
