City’s Now Required To Have Pro Dam Inspections

3/13/12 – The Beaver Dam Operations Committee last night approved hiring Kunkel Engineering to inspect the dam. Director of Facilities David Stoiser says the DNR is now requiring municipalities with a high-hazard dam – like Beaver Dam, Mayville and Columbus – to have the dams professionally inspected by a structural engineer every two years. If approved by the council, Kunkel will be paid $1500 for the inspection. Stoiser says city officials would continue to inspect the dam every two months.
