Ypsilanti's dam decision looms, Huron River could see a major change

Tear down a dam, or put another high-priced band-aid on it.

Those are the options before Ypsilanti’s decision-makers in the weeks ahead, and the public has only a day left to weigh in.

Since 2014 it’s been known that the Peninsular Paper Dam in Ypsilanti would need repairs, at a minimum.

Eventually the question morphed into: should the dam be removed for a one-time cost, or would the city make repairs knowing more repairs would be needed in the future.

Recently the city council got reports indicating that a complete demolition of the dam would come with a price tag of $2.7 million, while repairs would cost $800,000 in the immediate future.
