Michigan Dam Safety Task Force

Holly Gokee

The Michigan Dam Safety Task Force evaluated the statutory structure, budget, and program design of the Water Resources Division Dam Safety Program, the adequacy of Michigan's dam safety standards, and the level of investment needed in Michigan's dam infrastructure. Having completed its work, its final report has been sent to Governor Whitmer and the legislature. The report summarizes its findings and recommends regulatory, financial, and programmatic improvements to help ensure Michigan dams are appropriately maintained, operated, and overseen to protect Michigan residents and aquatic resources.
