I was reading the WLOS News 13 website yesterday, and it sounds like the Dillsboro Dam is closer to be removed. Here is what was written:
"An eight year battle over the future of a local landmark could be over. Crews began work on the demolition of the Dillsboro Dam Monday.
Duke Energy is under federal order to oversee the demolition. Duke representatives say the dam removal will promote public recreation, enhance the environment and retain power generation.
However, for some residents, the Dillsboro Dam is much more than just a waterway. It's a piece of history."
