The dam failed last June leaving the Hope Mills Lake dry. The town's attorney presented the plan during a commissioner's meeting this week. It calls for repairing the existing dam rather than building a new one. The companies that built the dam will repair it at their expense.

But it did serve as a reminder of the many dams in North Carolina that could be more dangerous if they failed. Mon, 25 Apr 2011 21:48:00 +0000 Jeremy Loeb 8893 at http://wunc.org
