Upon its completion, the new dam and levee system became the association’s major capital investment. The protection of that investment necessitates that we actively manage it. Further, the same Indiana law that mandated the reconstruction of our dam also requires us to perform ongoing maintenance. In response these requirements, the PPA Board formed the Dam Safety Committee. This committee meets regularly regarding dam management issues.
Thus far the Dam Safety Committee has generated a Maintenance and Management Plan which calls for quarterly self-inspections. They have also already completed one of these quarterly inspections.
