Comments: obvious impoundment. $4.2 million project began in 2010 to replace existing fixed low head dam dam with an inflatable rubber bladder dam. The new dam will be lowerable during periods of flooding.
May 16, 1973, fireman James Longmuir, boat over dam during a rescue operation for another person who went over the dam in an innertube. (Click here to view a report and photos of the incident.)

Longuir Incident Report:
"A boy on an inner tube went over the dam and was held by the "boil". Some skiers above the damn tried to assist by attempting to lower a man over the dam on a ski rope. The motor faltered allowing the boat to be swept over the dam. The boy was hauled up the buttress. The drowning victim was found near the life jacket floating in the bottom center of the picture. His rope had become wound around a large rock by the current."
