Dam Project Moves Ahead with Lottery Funding

The Big Creek Dam could fail at any time, leaving not only a dangerous situation for residents below the dam, but also only about one day worth of water for the city of Newport. Thanks to $250,000 from Business Oregon funding, money provided by the Oregon Lottery, the city started the process of analyzing what to do next in 2019. Since 1985 the Oregon Lottery has been providing economic development funds around the state.
