The dam on the Big Blue River near Marysville is no longer, after a collapse occurred following heavy rains.
According to Marysville City Administrator Austin St. John, the collapse is resulting in lower water levels on the Big Blue River, which might have an impact on the well system operated by Washington County Rural Water District No. 1. The water district provides water to Breeding Heights, and rural areas west of Marysville.
The dam once provided Marysville with hydro-electric power, but in recent decades was a place for local fishermen to gather.
