HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The state Bond Commission is expected to approve nearly $3 million to make needed repairs to the Savin Lake Dam in Lebanon.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who chairs the commission, said the dam is in poor condition and in “immediate need of significant repairs.” He said the funding is needed to eliminate a possible public safety risk but also increase community access to the lake for fishing and boating. The project includes improving off-street parking.

The dam, which is more than 70 years old, includes an earthen embankment that has experienced significant erosion and a dense growth of trees. Also, the primary spillway has severely deteriorated and needs to be replaced.

The commission is scheduled to vote Friday to approve borrowing for the dam repairs and other projects.
