Re: Spirit River Dam

Does anyone know exactly what all is involved in the repairs?

It must be pretty complicated to do any kind of fix with water still coming through!

You`d think they`d have to empty the entire Spirit !

I bet they get the water level at a all time low before the work is completed!

I drove by the dam last Tuesday and noticed a bass boat with two guys in the it right below the dam.

Re: Spirit River Dam

I think the powers in charge have just been dragging their feet on the dam issue too long.

It`s been going on for three years now. :roll:

Consistent low water levels equals lower property values. :shock: BUT, property taxes keep going up! :(
