HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Engineers say the Roush Dam is leaking.

According to our partner in news, the Journal Gazette, workers with the Army Corps of Engineers are installing instruments to measure the 40-year-old dam's natural settling process.

Roush Dam is also bending from the water pressure, but contracts as water levels fall.

And having drains controls where the water comes out, instead of leaving it to erosion.

The maintenance work is expected to cost $200,000 and last for two months.
