Indiana Michigan Power is lowering the water levels around its dam in Berrien Springs for maintenance work.

The St. Joseph River will be lowered three and a half feet, by six inches a day for the next week to allow for maintenance on the dam.

The maintenance will impact mostly those above the dam in an area known as Lake Chapin

I & M spokesperson Schnee Garrett said the work isn’t out of the ordinary.
