Danzig Dam getting a makeover

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s Save Our Lakes program is renovating 800 feet of shoreline along Danzig Dam in Morton County.

The SOL project includes lowering the water level to remove 15,000 cubic yards of sediment, which will deepen the shoreline and create better access for shore anglers. Additionally, a water control structure is being installed to enhance opportunities to address ongoing water quality issues.

Completion of the project is expected by June. However, it is anticipated the water level within the reservoir will remain low until next spring.

A fish eradication is planned for later this summer to remove undesirable species.
