People living near the Edenville Dam will get an update Thursday night on state plans to make repairs to a portion of the dam that didn't fail in May.

Days of heavy rain led to the Edenville dam to fail back in May. Flood waters that washed through the breach inundated communities downstream, doing tens of millions of dollars in damage.

The dam itself remains broken.

Officials with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy will hold an online public meeting on the effort to shore up the remaining portion of the dam.

The plans call for modifications to a spillway and stabilizing the dam and return the Tobacco River to its pre-failure route.

May’s dam failure remains under investigation and the future of the dam itself is uncertain.
