Friday afternoon, damage to the Barton Rd dam culvert became evident. To make inspection and repairs, Barton Rd is closed to traffic. The Highway and Police Departments and dam Engineers are on site for this. For the inspection and internal culvert repairs, the dam flow will be blocked off and lake level will rise slightly. The dam itself is secure and no other effects will be felt around the lake.
However, boaters are asked to avoid the dam area and NOT generate large wakes anywhere near it today to enable inspectors to enter the culvert safely.
There will be more information available after the inspection and repair.
