Epping-Springbrook Dam – ND

Description

The Epping-Springbrook Dam was the “largest earthfill dam in the State. Constructed as an FERA and WPA project, it was completed in 1936. This bulwark on STONY CREEK has created a lake covering 180 acres, which, including a strip of land around the water, will be made into a State park devoted entirely to recreation.”

The exact location and current status of the project is unknown to Living New Deal, though we believe the dam to be no longer extant.
