Flooding from recent rains washed away large sections of big pieces of riprap rock from two areas of the Country Squire Lake dam.

Damage was minimal to the surface of Country Manor Way, the roadway atop the dam, but its foundation was eroded and requires repair.

Other roadways through Jennings County also incurred damage from the flooding earlier this month.

High water spilled over the dam, and Country Manor Way, both on July 14 and July 17 following torrential rains on the two dates.

The road, a main thoroughfare in Country Squire Lakes, remains open. The Jennings County Highway Department, which took over jurisdiction of Country Manor Way two years ago, is now in the process of arranging for some of the stone to be replaced.
