Dam Break at BMP

Pictured is the dam that failed at the Balsam Mountain Preserve golf course. This photograph was taken looking upstream. There's much more (photos and data) on the dam break at the website for the Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee River.
Also, stayed tuned for a round-up of media coverage on the dam break and the public hearing on new development ordinances for Jackson County.

We will have an in-depth story on the dam break in next week's issue of the paper. With several other timely events in Jackson County this week, such as the public hearing on the ordinance and a decision on the public library, we were unable to get to this story this week. It was a hard call, but we always like to do a thorough job on what we report, so we opted to wait a week until we had more time to devote to the story. Thanks, Becky Johnson, Smoky Mountain News reporter
