Having worked with the DNR in my state, I am very surprised that the story is not true.Originally posted by Planificador Urbano
The Dam story in Michigan is false. That story has been going around for years. I am on the Michigan Society of Planners Board of Directors... in which so is the Department of Environmental Quality Chief. It was asked a couple of years ago about that story when it started... It never happened and she does not know how it got started........... just a joke from the anti-government types with there wity eight grade education I guess. As ALWAYS NEVER NEVER believe everything you read on the internet. Are you suprised?
I've mentioned some anecdotes before, but my favorite has to do with placing quarried limestone boulders along the edge of a lake. The DNR raised a fuss because it might change the pH of the water. Um, it was approved, they were quarried from local bedrock at the other end of the lake, and they sit directly upon the limestone bedrock at the surface on the shore. Well, they really wanted to restore the natural shoreline... on a man-made lake.
