Elk River Municipal Utilities will conduct the annual inspection of the Elk River Dam on Wednesday, October 6. This deep dive into the nooks and crannies of the structure is critical in ensuring its operating as safe and efficiently as possible. In order to conduct the inspection, Lake Orono will be lowered by approximately 30 inches, keeping water from going over the dam.
The inspection will begin and end on the same day, and don’t worry the lake will refill within a few days of lowering.
