Area dam may get overhaul


A 1930s dam in Golden Valley County could receive a complete overhaul this summer and once again become a fishing spot for outdoor enthusiasts.

The U.S. Forest Service, Dakota Prairie Grasslands, is looking to rehabilitate Williams Dam located about 10 miles southeast of Golva.

"It's going to be a good project," said Ron Jablonski Jr., district ranger for the Medora Ranger District, Dakota Prairie Grasslands. "I think it's going to be a great one, to tell you the truth."
