FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Fort Wayne crews are set to increase the city's water reserves for the summer.

Workers will start installing "flashboards" at the Saint Joe River Dam on Monday.

This is an annual project which helps raise the water level in the reservoir on the dam's north side.

Officials say it helps provide the city with more water for drinking and other purposes.
