Barryton Keeps A Close Eye on Dam For Flooding

Posted: Updated:

When Mother Nature wants to do something, there isn't much we can do to stop her.

Already this spring, Northern Michigan has seen high water levels across the area and the oncoming storm system is looking to wreck havoc on many river systems.

In Barryton, they are keeping a close eye on their dam and opening the gates as needed to alleviate the water level.

But if the level gets above two feet on this gauge, it can crest the dam and create havoc downstream.

9&10's Eric Lloyd was in town to check out the dam and has more details.
