LUVERNE — Improvements to the Rock River dam are estimated to cost approximately $90,000 more than the anticipated cost-share dollars available, according to Luverne City Administrator John Call. He presented the information to members of the Luverne City Council during a work session Tuesday night.
Water runs over the top the dam and out of its banks in many areas of the Rock River in and around Luverne. With temperatures forecast to climb into the 50 degree range today, more melting, runoff and possible erosion is expected later this week.
