Post Consumer Brands will be conducting a routine inspection of the Ames Mill dam and portions of the Malt-O-Meal building foundation. This work is scheduled to begin the week of February 17 and is intended to be completed by March 6 (weather permitting).
Heavy precipitation events throughout the spring, summer, and fall months led to increased water flow in the Cannon River which prevented this work from taking place during more mild weather months.
The public can expect to see activity adjacent to the river including the use of equipment, such as flashboards, for re-routing the water to one side of the dam. This will allow teams to conduct dam and wall surface inspections.
