Vote on Udey Dam Payment Expected

The Columbus Council will be voting tonight on payment of the only change order for the Udey Dam repair project. The Crawfish River Dam in the City of Columbus is ready for a return to use. The project cost will be $574 thousand dollars…most of that covered by state DNR funds. Impoundment of the Crawfish could begin as soon as the City’s Emergency Management plan is approved by the DNR. When the DNR OK is received the City will be able to close the gates and return the upstream water levels their 2004 mark.
