VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Repairs to the Stumpy Lake Spillway have been postponed.

Hurricane Matthew caused soil to erode near the dam spillway.

The work is being postponed so officials can conduct more inspections on the spillway before repairs are made.

“Results of the inspection will determine when the work will be rescheduled,” Project Manager Richard A. Harrell said.

The dam is not in any danger of failure.
