New look in store for repaired Rough River Dam

Rough River Dam will have a dramatic new look, according to the latest version of plans to repair the 60-year-old earthern structure.
During a public hearing April 18, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees the dam, said the new plans will include a new control tower, outlet works and stilling basin.
And even better news for vacationers and property and business owners around Rough River Lake — water levels won’t have to be significantly dropped for the work.
