A northern Michigan dam, that was unsafe for fish, has been removed. According to The Associated Press, The Pigeon River was dammed several times since the late 1800s to help float logs, create a fishing pond and generate power for a yoga retreat. However, operational and mechanical errors over the years allowed sediment releases that killed hundreds of thousands of trout. A state lawsuit was filed and the dam has since been dismantled.
