A big thank you! to Mike Seagly and Bob May who pointed out that the Cuddy went on a romp, (not exactly a surprise since so many rivers are at flood stage at the moment) blew out the south side of the 1st St-to-Patterson section, and dumped a bunch of sediment east of the Patterson Bridge. Ugh. I just received a quick email reply from Allegan Drain Commissioner Denise Medemar, that maintenance engineer Brent Scholten is meeting with a contractor on-site to survey the damage. I’m crossing my fingers that the blowout is just along that side. I can only imagine how fast the water was tearing through there…..
I will add to this post as I learn more info.
