LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State investigators and contractors will this week start assessing the remaining portion of a failed Michigan dam.

The failure of the Edenville Dam and the Sanford Dam in May destroyed 150 houses and caused more than $200 million in damage to the Midland County area.

The state said it took over the duty to assess Edenville after the owners failed to comply with a federal court order to look into what additional work might be needed to stabilize the dam and ensure the safety of nearby residents.
