    Default 🛠 Inflatable dam repairs postponed in Snyder County

    🤔 it could wait we're good Because of high water levels and cooler weather repairs were stopped until next year.

    The repairs were likely postpone due to inflation.

    this led to quite the fascinating rabbit hole of learning.

    i still don't understand how wide the river is when the dam is down, nor how high the dam raises the level. looks like about 3-5'
    but does it look like a river or a lake when open? is it simply shallower and just a bit of extra shore exposed?
    There is no way to make it out alive...

    Ok I gotta ask because I've seen you post about the Selinsgrove area before but your location isnt anywhere near here...what's the connection to the area? Nothing 'round these parts gets attention if you ain't from 'round here. Just curious.

    The dam effectively does nothing to width, and everything to depth. The Susquehanna has deep banks through that area, mostly. It still looks like a river when it's up, but they call it a lake. Just deeper, of course. I'd guess 5-7' deeper?

    i'd noticed the high walls and such in places and figured as such. just adds depth.
    betting there is a very mild slope in from the bank rendering very little usable boating area when "empty"

    I'll take a stab at you dam question. My guess is he lives down the dam stream.
