Engineers inspecting Big Lazer WMA lake dam after recent rainfall

TALBOT COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - Engineers in Talbot County are inspecting a faulty dam following recent rainfall.

Emergency management officials say the piping that keeps the Big Lazer Creek WMA lake from overflowing is leaking. Emergency spillways are working as designed, meaning there is currently no threat.

However, property owners downstream near Adams Ferry and Minor Road in Thomaston need to be on the lookout for rising water levels.
