Silver Lake Regional Documents Collection

Identifier: RDC-004
Scope and Contents

This collection focuses on the rebuilding of Silver Lake Dam after its failure in 2003. It contains relatively little about the failure itself. (See the Dead River Regional Documents Collection for more on the dam failure.) It documents concerns about the engineering of the rebuilt dam as well as concerns about the environmental and wildlife impact of the dam.

Dates: 2002 - 2016


This collection guide includes collections from member organizations of UPLINK (the Upper Peninsula Digital Network) as well as the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives. UPLINK collections document the history of the Upper Peninsula broadly, while the Central UP & NMU Archives focuses on such topics as Northern Michigan University history, the local iron mining industry, and the politics, economics, religion, environment, and culture of the Central Upper Peninsula region.

These finding aids will give you an overview of the contents and context of each collection. Finding aids only exist for collections that each organization has shared with UPLINK or (in the case of the NMU Archives) for processed collections. For a more comprehensive list of collections that might help with your research, please contact the relevant heritage organization(s) directly.
