City Closes Boat Launches Due to Upstream Dam Work

February 19, 2021 – Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Midland Parks and Recreation has closed the Bob G. Caldwell Municipal Boat Launch and Golfside Drive Boat Launch until further notice due to scheduled work at the Edenville Dam beginning Wednesday, February 24. 

Crews will begin lowering water levels at the Tobacco River spillway on February 24. As water flow is slowly returned to the spillway, there will be an increase of water levels and current speed downstream of the dam, including the City of Midland. The fluctuating river level will impact the stability of both ice and open water and make it unsafe for residents to ice fish, walk, or recreate on the Tittabawassee River.

The public is warned to stay off the ice and open water on the river until further notice. The river is not expected to overflow its banks in the City of Midland while work is underway.

For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation at 989-837-6930.
