State making plans to remove Shiatown dam
An article published in the Sunday February 13, 2011 Argus Press confirms the removal of the Shiatown Dam.
The Michigan Land Bank, which owns the dam, has announced plans to take it down.
“We are in the process of coming up with a plan and searching for funding to remove it,”
said Jeffrey Huntington, a property analyst at the Land Bank.
“Dam ownership is really not what the Land Bank does.
We don’t have the funds to sustain the dam for a long time.”
The Shiatown Dam in Durand, Michigan will soon disappear, be demolished, and removed
allowing the Shiawassee River to run freely once again.
