Update on the Pigeon River Situation
A quick note about the fallout from last year’s Pigeon River situation — namely, the failure of the dam at the Golden Lotus Yoga Center on the Pigeon River, which caused a massive fish kill for miles downstream from the dam site. The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports today that Otsego County Circuit Court Judge Dennis F. Murphy has issued an order that Golden Lotus is to remove the offending dam and to pay $150,000 in fines for the outcomes of their dam failure.
True North Trout welcomes this decision — the dam failure was the second time that this sort of thing has happened on the Pigeon River as a result of a failure off that dam equipment. It is well past time that this madness stop.
