Army Corps To Protect Hayden Dike

High water levels have Kootenai County officials asking for help in protecting the dam on the southwest portion of Hayden Lake. Concerned about water lapping at the earthen dam, county officials have contacted the Army Corps of Engineers.  The Corps is planning to take some protective measures that might involve reinforcing the structure to ensure its integrity.  Officials have closed the top of the dam to public access, and commissioners will pass a resolution that creates a temporary no-wake zone in the area of Honeysuckle Bay near the dam/KREM.
