According to Midland County officials as of ~3pm (EST) 5/20/2020, the Sanford dam may still be somewhat intact but they can't tell because it's underwater (they're using the term "failed" because it's spilling over, not necessarily because the structure has collapsed). Latest images of the Sanford dam appear to show overflow limited to the emergency spillway area. The current hope is that the dam itself will hold long enough for the upstream flow from the Wixom lake breach to recede. If the Sanford dam fails, areas downstream are looking at 500-year flood levels. Local and state police have already begun staging in a number of downstream areas, presumably to facilitate evacuations if the dam fails.

@hay woods it seems to me that buildiing permits on the flood plains should never have been issued. Supervisors eager to increase the tax base must bear some responsibility. But greed turns a deaf ear to common sense.

@Michael Stover Who is going to pay for it? That is where the problem starts. One of the major problems with earthen dams is not the dam itself. But with the emergency spillway designs. If you look at most of them, they are simply lower areas of the earthen dam. Some may have riprap in that area but most are just grass seeded earth. It takes concrete to make a spillway that works and survives. One good thing did come out of it though. A lot of the sediment in the lake got washed out so if they rebuild the dam, there will be an increase in capacity for storage.

We are not able to afford modern infrastructure in this country because of of our massive military involvement at virtually every other point on the globe. Even in peacetime we have troops fighting at multiple sites and hundreds of bases around the world. Our buildup of military force makes it necessary for other countries to increase their strength to counter us, causing a continuous escalation of arms threat. It is now high time to rethink our strategy for safety in the world. It has made us unable to maintain a pandemic response team and various other social and economic support mechanisms.

Just a thought. With all the dams in the world. Does anyone nowadays really know what to do or what will happen? Does that make sense?" Is there planned situations of dams failing? The only way to understand some of this stuff is to go through it. I assume most people look at a dan and go yep concrete wall & don't give it a 2nd thought. Never been any issues. Not gonna ever worry about it. I want to know the actual number of how many dams in the world are WAY outdated. And the excuse has always been no money too expensive. Well just look what will happen.

We weren't allowed to buy flood insurance because we are not in a flood plain. 2 other dams were also involved in the mess. The Chappel dam structure on Wiggins lake was also topping. Everyone was evacuated on Monday night along with all Billings township residents on Wixom out of fear of a washout. It held, by the grace of God, but it contributed greatly to the pressures on the Tittabawassee side of the Edenville dam. The other dam, in Beaverton, is the only non-berm dam in the county. It just went through major upgrades in the last couple of years. It held strong. When the Army Corps of Engineers rebuilds Secord, Smallwood and Wixom, we hope for much more advanced design.

It may be possible for Michigan to implement through reason and understanding the following in order to avoid continued catastrophes: reestablish the natural watercourses and wetlands. Wetlands must be given back to nature as natural water catchments for floodwaters. I think dams are part of it. This is according to Billy Meier an 86 year old man from Switzerland who claims to be in contact with people from another world.

EARTH FILLED DAMS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR FAILURE. WHERE WERE THE STATE INSPECTIONS? ALSO, THESE DAMS NEEDED A 50 ft BRIK BRAK FACE TO SLOW EROSION IN A TOP OVER. (2 to 4 foot chunks of rock and concrete) WHY WEREN'T THESE IMPOUNDMENTS DRAWN DOWN FULLY WITH HEAVY RAIN? FAST WATER ERODES FAST. POOR PLANNING LEADS TO POOR RESULTS.

Apparently the AG for Michigan sued the dam owners to raise the level of the reservoirs because of some endangered clam. Makes sense. I mean it is Michigan.

We need to get all the pictures we can it sure looks to me like the gates were in the up position when they should be down to relieve the flood waters. If you watch the other damn breaking you will notice it sure looks like the flood system is in the up position. There's a rumor going around that the governor ordered the gates closed! We need to verify this please

Hi, I live in Michigan not far from the affected area. Nothing new to report except the finger pointing has begun, Also people have started to go four wheeling on the lake bed and many have had to be rescued from quicksand type of events. Local officials now have the headache of trying to restrict access. Homeowners with valuable lakefront property are already asking whats next and calling for the dams to be rebuilt. Personally I think that will never happen but stay tuned.

Why are we always told that dams are for flood control, but the way they are managed creates more flooding? Why are most dams filled up with water and then they maintain the basins behind the dams at a mostly full level? Maintaining mostly full basins provides almost zero holding capacity during large rain events. Why wouldn't it be more beneficial to maintain basins at very low levels, so that during large rain events, the basins would need to fill up before any flooding would occur? If basins are already full to begin with, wouldn't almost all of the water from the large rain event be all flood water? All the dams within a watershed could be maintained at a mostly wide open state with low water levels, and then after a large rain event, all the dams along the river could partially close, so each are slowly filling up their basins all at once, with some filling up faster, but all raising their levels together controlling the flow. Then increase the closing of the dams as needed to hold back more water. This would provide an enormous amount of holding capacity compared to the current so called management plans of today.
