The Army Corp of Engineers spent Wednesday afternoon inspecting the Perry Dam on the Delaware River.
This type of inspection is standard and done every 10 years. All the water at the dam is drained and fish removed by the Kansas Wildlife and Parks as the team takes a look at the mechanics and structure of the dam.
“Right now what we have two contractors in place. We have some repairs where we’re cleaning out some drainage systems and then we’re also doing some concrete repairs, nothing very critical but this is the time to get that done,” Kenneth Wade with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers said.
Annual inspections are also done on a much smaller scale to ensure good operation.
