Feds Give Nebraska Millions For Spencer Dam Replacement
(KVHT) – Federal officials are giving Nebraska more than $50 million toward the replacement of the Spencer Dam on the Niobrara River. The dam collapsed during devastating flooding in March of 2019, which resulted in the death of a man who lived just downstream from the dam. The funding will cover 75% of the cost of the project, with the rest to come from state and local sources. A surge of ice boulders took out the dam which was 93-years old. Some ice chunks measured up to 2 feet thick and 20 feet long. The storm caused additional major damage across the state of Nebraska.
