SHIAWASSEE TWP. — A new report from the Michigan Department of
says there are no contaminants in the sediment
near the Shiatown dam, enabling a plan to remove
part or all of the dam
to proceed on schedule.
Experts have said the 108-year-old landmark — located on the
Shiawassee River at Bennington Road
near Bancroft Road — serves no
practical purpose and is in desperate need of extensive repairs that
would not be cost-effective.
