The Miner Flat Dam will take about 4-6 years to build . It will cost about close to $200 million. It will be 160 feet high and the length will be 450 feet long . It will be located at Miner Flats . They will use concrete mix, and dirt. What we need to consider for dam safety is that surrounding rocks won't float away and will hold. If the dam broke , it would flood Whiteriver. What we can do to protect the dam is when it gets too filled, the gates could release some water to make it normal level. If a hawks nest were at the site, it's nest would get washed out. So the dam may destroy some animal homes. Some animals may have to live in a different place. Maybe even some fish may have to leave too.
