[ARCHIVED] Residents Urged to Stay off Dams and Lakes

May 22, 2020 - Midland County Emergency Management and the Midland County Sheriff’s Office urge residents to stay away from Wixom and Sanford lakes and the Edenville and Sanford dams due to ongoing safety concerns.

 Rapid changes in water levels and flow have created significant amounts of erosion at the dams and lakes, making it unsafe for residents to access them. Do not walk on lake beds, dams, river banks, or any areas near these bodies of water. These conditions are potentially life-threatening.
