I may know where this location is. There are two dams along Perry creeks. One is on Cow Creek south of the Cedar Creek bridge and west of 86 Highway. The other is on the south side of the railroad tracks on the south side of Lions Club Park and city pool. I don’t know which one this entry references but we called the one on Cow Creek the Power Supply Dam when I was growing up. I’ve been to both of these sites.
