SHIAWASSEE TWP. —
The next step in the removal of the Shiatown dam is starting to take shape.
An engineer is waiting for the water level of the Shiawassee River
to go down this spring before he completes some survey work,
according to Tom Cook, president of the Friends of the Shiawassee River.
The dam is managed by the Michigan Land Bank, but the state asked
the Friends to help with the removal process after studies revealed safety concerns.
