Water, not dams dangerous to area
To the Editor,
Re: City plans to remove two century-old dams, Nov. 1.
The city has made a hard, but wise decision in favour of public safety.
If the dam breaches and all that water does the damage imagined, that is a big problem.
But, it’s the water that would cause the actual damage, not the dams. Why not drain the water below dam levels, install culverts under the dams or cut a drainage creek from the upper river to the lower one? It’s a dry creek in the summer anyway.
Save millions of dollars, leave the dams.
