May 31 is National Dam Safety Awareness Day. On this day, we remember the lessons learned from past dam failures and rededicate ourselves to the effective public-private partnerships that work to keep America's dams safe, operational, and resilient.
Kent has its own high-risk dam, the Lake Carmel Dam. It has been known to need repair for over 40 years, and the Town is seeking funding for this via congressional appropriation. Please complete Rep. Maloney's infrastructure survey and ask him to make dam safety in Lake Carmel his top priority. Thank you!
