Governor Directs Department to Investigate Dam Failures

May 29, 2020

Governor Gretchen Whitmer sent a letter to the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, directing them to investigate what caused the Edenville Dam and Sanford Dam to fail. Following their failure, several area counties received historic flooding. The governor also requested the department to review the larger issue of dam safety in Michigan and provide recommendations on policy, legislative, budgetary, and enforcement reforms that can prevent these harms from repeating elsewhere.
