The Twin Falls dam on the Menominee River, bordering Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, was built in 1912. The hydroelectric dam has been repaired and upgraded many times over its life.

It’s not easy to put a price tag on bringing peace of mind to a community. But it is possible to measure the impact of eliminating a threat to public health and safety. And there is lasting impact from restoring land for generations of reuse. Black & Veatch has achieved all that in its work at the site of a Florida wood treating company.
