An Arlington dam is in danger of failing and Mayor Jeff Williams is putting out a warning.  

The Prestonwood Lake Dam is a private structure in north Arlington near Lamar and Northwest Green Oaks.

Williams says city staff inspected recent erosion and suggest failure of the spillway "...may be imminent."

The city does not believe homes will be flooded in case of a breach but says the roads could be.
