Rural dam in Roscommon County failed

Wraco Dam in Roscommon County failed Tuesday morning at approximately 9 a.m. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) maintains the dam, located along Wolf Creek in Roscommon Township.

The Wraco Dam is listed as a low-hazard dam that should not affect downstream private residences, because the land surrounding the dam is public land, managed by the DNR. U.S. 127, which crosses Wolf Creek, is currently being monitored by the Michigan Department of Transportation but is not found to be severely impacted at this time.
