Stimulus money to fix dam

Published: May 8, 2009 - Jackson County Floridan
The Corps got $3 million to repair the spillway bridge, a heavy-duty walkway situated above the gates which allows water to flow through the dam from Lake Seminole into the Apalachicola River.

... a new $500,000 metering system, which will more accurately measure how much water is released from Lake Seminole into the river. Currently, the Corps relies on scientific tables that calculate an estimated flow. This improvement could be of use in the continuing water negotiations between Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
