RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Residents in Hopkins have voted in favor of a referendum that would create a special taxing district to rebuild the dam on Lake Dogwood.

The dam was among dozens in South Carolina damaged in the historic flood of 2015.

Out of 110 registered voters, 49 ballots were casts: 33 voted yes, 15 voted no. 

Lake Dogwood is a privately maintained residential lake that drained away after its dam broke. 

Three similar measures were approved by people who live along Upper and Lower Rockyford, Cary and Beaver Dams.
