Looks like the governor of Michigan has some splainin to do! The feds pulled the license on the now failed dam in 2018. The owners wanted to lower lake levels to comply, but the state wouldn’t let them. The owner filed suit in April citing safety concerns. Of course the state environmental agency wouldn’t give them permission to lower lake levels for fear of wrecking the clam habitat.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vowed the state will “pursue every line of legal recourse” against those responsible for the calamity.
