Thousands of people in the U.S. may be at risk from dams that are rated in poor or unsatisfactory condition. An AP analysis found 1,688 dams in these conditions are high hazard, meaning their failure can cause human death.An Associated Press interactive graphic shows the location of dangerous dams in the United States. My part of the country doesn't have many, but my old stomping grounds back in Kentucky and Indiana are just riddled with them.
Note the graphic is interactive, so not only can you zoom to your area, but you can hover the mouse for the information shown in the top image.
I am so very, very tired of this bullshit. American politicians have been kicking the can down the road for way too many election cycles. Someone has to raise taxes and fix these things. Maybe it will require electing a Socialist to get these problems corrected.
