Montevideo, Minn., City Council moves to remove dam on the Chippewa River
MONTEVIDEO -- A low-head dam on the Chippewa River in Montevideo could be removed as early as next year.
Council members at their meeting Monday approved a dam safety agreement with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. It will serve to make $150,000 in state funds available for the dam's removal.
The city has already obtained a commitment of $150,000 in funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the project.
