Century old dam removal from Kalamazoo River nearly complete

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is nearly done removing a century-old dam to return the Kalamazoo River to its natural state.

The department is set to complete the Otsego Township Dam removal and the area’s restoration within the next six months, according to the Kalamazoo Gazette.

The dam hasn’t produced power for decades.

The EPA included the removal in its cleanup of contaminated sediment at a Superfund site.

Authorities say the department is close to returning the location to its natural state, though the banks will be slightly higher than in the past.

They expect the high level of activity at the site to end by October.
