Michigan Governor’s Folly Continues

5/21/2020: Michigan governor’s response to the Midland flood is that she will sue the responsible party.

Guess who? The State of Michigan who has oversight and determined the structure was sound.

The following responsible party information from: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edenville_Dam

“Following the federal government’s 2018 license revocation, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) took oversight of the dam, which involved temporarily lowering the lake by 7 feet.[11] EGLE determined that the dam was structurally sound.[12]”

“[12] Erin Ailworth; John D. Stoll (May 20, 2020). “Failed Michigan Dam Lost License in 2018”. The Wall Street Journal. Retrieved May 21, 2020. After its license was revoked by FERC, regulation of the Edenville dam was taken over by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy in 2018. Spokesman Nick Assendelft said the agency inspected the dam in October 2018 and found it structurally sound.”
