WHAT IS THE ISSUE WITH CORNWALL CREEK FLOODING?
Cornwall Dam was built in 1966 to create the 295-acre Cornwall Creek Flooding in the heart of the Pigeon River Country State Forest, Cheboygan County.
The dam is owned and maintained by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. A 2019 safety inspection rated the earthen dam in poor condition and recommended immediate action. Draw down of the water will begin this fall of 2023 for further inspection and planned removal of the dam.
We are a group of citizens that have visited, enjoyed and recreationally use Cornwall Creek Flooding. We are wildlife enthusiasts, outdoorsmen, fishermen, hunters, equine lovers, campers, kayakers, canoeists, hikers, and bicyclists. We appreciate and understand the importance of Cornwall's preservation for our families and future generations..
