Coming Friday: Emails document change in dam removal plans

TRAVERSE CITY — An email sent to a state official describes an engineering design modification to the Brown Bridge Dam removal project two days before a breach flooded dozens of Boardman River residential properties.

The Record-Eagle obtained the emails this week. They document an exchange between Sandra Sroonian, an engineer who supervises the Brown Bridge Dam removal project, and Lucas A. Trumble, of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality's Hydrologic Studies and Dam Safety Unit.
