Better safe than sorry

Boy, if Canyon Dam burst it would be a major catastrophe.

Let's hope all goes well with the inspections.

CANYON LAKE — The Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday that Canyon Dam has been rated as having “very high-risk characteristics.”

A national team of engineers will study it to determine if work is needed, the corps said.

A corps official stressed that the dam is working well. But he said engineers would do a closer inspection of the dam, among the oldest of 25 in the corps’ Fort Worth district.
