MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - A full report on needed repairs to the Lake Manatee dam is expected to be presented to Manatee County Commissioners Thursday afternoon.

The county utilities director will give a presentation outlining the necessary fixes to the dam.

Engineers have been investigating the best way to deal with the erosion problems to the structure at Lake Manatee since February. That's when inspectors found the dam was severely distressed and heavy rains could cause serious problems.
