UPDATE: State Regulators Weigh in on Brown Bridge Dam Breach

Posted: Updated:

Investigators are finally taking a closer look at the construction device that failed during the Brown Bridge Dam project in Grand Traverse County.

Michigan's Dam Safety Unit had to wait until this week to examine the dewatering structure. It was meant to slowly drain the Brown Bridge Dam Pond, but failed on October 6th. In result, dozens of properties were flooded.

State regulators say the breach was a violation of a permit issued to remove the dam.
