People who fish or swim near the dam in Edinburgh won’t see any signs about the danger the dam poses, but both the town and state would like to add warnings after two teens died this summer.

In a typical summer, residents would swim downstream of the dam or wade out to sandbars and fish. But the accident is fresh in people’s minds, said Nancy Jessie, who works at a bait shop nearby. Jessie hasn’t seen a single person swimming in the river since the drowning and said fewer people are fishing.

At least one person stops by every day to chat about the accident, look at the memorials, or sit quietly and watch the dam for a few minutes, she said.
