Dike fails at spoil site

Wednesday, July 31, 2002

Workers from Wetherell Excavating & Trucking view an area on a dike located on the southwest corner of an interior cell on the Storm Lake spoil site which gave way early Friday morning.

The area which gave way led into an emergency spillway which briefly collected water before Wetherell employees began repair work around 7 a.m. this morning. Both Wetherell and state DNR officials said the integrity of the main dike was not jeopardized by the break.
