Ernemartl von Truetzschler: Dam worries

I am reflecting to the write-up concerning the Dillon Dam, and its safety! What is the plan? Referring to the police, who sits there during the day, though the dam is closed at night.

I doubt Denver Water is interested in the loss of Silverthorne, rather in the loss of the water it draws from the reservoir for the City of Denver.

Anyone can drop a bomb out of a vehicle passing the dam with a delayed detonation.

When I moved to Summit County 31 years ago, the breaking of the dam was my concern, property to me was only of interest above the reservoir. It still is. There was no mention for the future of danger way down the road of time.

What is your plan? Do we have one? What good does it do for the police to sit there?

The recent letter in the Summit Daily mentioned a person in Texas who had a list of targets, among them was our dam, the Dillon dam in Colorado. In this case, what is our option? Guarding the Dillon Dam-road – no matter how convenient to us since you cannot guard it. What is the option. Seems but to close it?

I would like feedback.
