Land Agent Mike Cornelison and Commissioner Jarrod Johnson at the west end of Lake Hanson
in Hanson County next to a dam that the office is responsible for.
One of the many duties of the office of School and Public Lands is the maintenance
and annual inspection of over 100 WPA dams located across South Dakota.
This spring, some parts of South Dakota have received
enough runoff and moisture to cause overflow on spillways.
It is important that all dams be ready to handle moisture as
precipitation returns to a more normal pattern.
