Minong Flowage Dam Repair March 2014 Update

March 4, 2014 Minong Flowage dam repair update. Final repairs were completed during the week of February 17 and successfully tested on February 25. The Wisconsin DNR has agreed on a plan to proceed immediately with the refill.

WI DNR conditions for the refill include the requirement to maintain a specified water level downstream from the dam, and posting of signs on the Minong Flowage alerting the public that the refill is underway and ice conditions could deteriorate from the rising water levels. It is expected, though cannot be determined with any certainty, that the refill will proceed slowly and the Flowage back to pre-repair water level shortly after ice out.

If you are selling, get a jump on the prime spring market to list your property now. If you’re buying, it might be a good time to to take a closer look at the Minong Flowage or Cranberry lake.

The $1.1 million project will be paid for in part by a $400,000 grant from WI DNR and a $100,000 contribution from Dahlberg Light and Power, which uses the dam to generate power.  The remainder will be paid by affected property owners through a special assessment.  In principle, it’s no different from the assessments levied by cities to pay for curbs or storm sewers—and the bill might not be any larger.
