RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

As we approach the two-year anniversary of the historic 2015 flood, about 100 voters in Hopkins will decide Tuesday how to repair and maintain a local dam.

Residents will vote on a referendum that would create a special taxing district for rebuild the dam on Lake Dogwood.

Lake Dogwood is a privately-maintained residential lake that drained after its dam broke during the historic flood in 2015. 

Three similar measure were already approved along Upper and Lower Rockyford, Cary and Beaver Dams.
