#32 Ann Arbor Stories: Dam Arbor

When: May 25, 2017

The Huron River travels 130 miles from White Lake Township in Oakland County all the way down to Lake Erie - meandering through Dexter, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Belleville, Flat Rock, and Rockwood. Since Ann Arbor's founding, the river has been used as a method of transportation and source of power, helping the city prosper and grow. Here's a dam fine history of Ann Arbor's dams, which includes death, floods, and the odds of a coming watery apocalypse.

Listener warning: This episode contains references to drowning, dead people, and liberal use of the word "dam."

Music by Chris Bathgate, from his new album Dizzy Seas
