Badger Creek Dam Failure

This is a message from Gallatin County Emergency Management for the residents along Sixteenmile Creek. The Badger Creek Dam in Meagher County near US 12 has breached and significantly increased the water discharge. Badger Creek becomes Battle Creek and empties into Sixteenmile Creek just upriver from Sixteen. People in the area should watch for a significant increase in waterflow based on what Meagher County is reporting. This may affect bridges and culverts in the area. Please use caution in flooded areas as the amount of water can often be deceiving and quickly sweep vehicles and people away. In an emergency, call 911.
