Results of an investigation into flooding last year during a dam removal project in Michigan's northwestern Lower Peninsula are expected to be sent to the state attorney general's office for review.
Brian Jankowski, a district supervisor for the state Department of Environmental Quality, told the Traverse City Record-Eagle that a state investigation into environmental damage to the Boardman River is expected to be sent to that office.
The update comes as Michigan environmental regulators consider enforcement actions.
The Oct. 6 flood happened during a span of hours in what was supposed to be a slow draining of the Brown Bridge Dam in Grand Traverse County's East Bay Township. The dam removal project is part of a broader effort to return the Boardman River to a more natural state.
