E-M:/ TCL&P plans to pull plug on Boardman dams



Stage set for eventual removal
 
TRAVERSE CITY - Traverse City Light and Power plans to start shutting down its three hydroelectric dams on the Boardman River, one more step toward their possible removal.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources then will begin lining up funding for the next step in the removal process - a full engineering and feasibility study, said the DNR's Todd Kalish.  The DNR supports removing the dams to improve the river's aquatic habitat and fishery.
