The CopperRange.org Discussion Board: Save the Redridge Dam: Spring 2004 update
By CindyMiller ( on Thursday, March 04, 2004 - 9:17 am:

On March 10, 2004 there will be a presentation of options by a Professional Engineer to the Stanton Township Board. He has prepared 5 "solutions" to the DEQ demand to "repair, replace or remove" the wooden crib dam. The presentation will be at the Boards regular monthly meeting at 7pm at the Township Hall in Liminga and the public is welcome to come and give their thoughts and have questions answered. Hope to see you there! Cindy

For those of us who were not able to be at the Township Hall on March 10 (or tonight's meeting? Was it moved?), please post the results. From the March 15, 2004 MTU alumni newsletter: ---- TOWNSHIP HEARS REDRIDGE FIXES TONIGHT: The Stanton Township board will hold a special meeting tonight to consider temporary fixes for the two deteriorating Redridge dams. The right side of the timber crib dam has collapsed. If the timber crib dam collapses completely, it is almost certain the timbers would clog the steel dam's valves, causing buildup and eventually the collapse of the steel dam. The township owns the dame, but the expense of proposed repairs range from $311,000 to $1 million--all out of range for the sparsely populated township. ---- Carolyn (4th generation from a Freda family, now deposited on the East Coast much too far from the UP)
