Indianford Dam Update – July 18, 2019
We wanted to provide an update to the issue noted at Indianford Dam over a week ago. In the past week, RKLD has worked with individuals very familiar with the type of environment we have at the dam. On Wednesday night, a gentleman by the name of Chris Cutts along with Scott Purlee from Eagle Creek who manages the dam in Janesville met with RKLD representatives to review steps necessary to rectify the problem. When RKLD was investigating qualified individuals, Chris was paraphrased by Rob Davis, Water Management Engineer at DNR, “If Chris Cutts is involved…..you have the right guy. This guy is a genius when it comes to hydro dams – which is what you have, minus the turbines.”
We expect to receive a proposal from Chris in the coming days to repair the dam at which time the RKLD Board will meet to formally approve the emergency repairs. Repairs are expected to take approximately 2 weeks.
