Dairyland Urging Caution on Flambeau Reservoir
Dairyland Power Cooperative urges caution to those who are using the Dairyland Reservoir (Lake Flambeau) near Ladysmith, Wis., for recreational activities this time of year. The ice becomes unstable and dangerous as spring approaches.
Fishermen, snowmobilers, boaters and all recreational enthusiasts using the Reservoir should also be cautious near the spillway, since dangerous currents can develop as flows increase.
Dairyland is implementing a normal drawdown of up to two feet, as the spring run-off starts. The total drawdown could be as much as three feet, depending on the amount of additional precipitation and the rate of snow melt.
The Flambeau Hydroelectric Station, located on the Flambeau River five miles northeast of Ladysmith, has been generating clean, efficient electricity since 1951. This water-powered facility can generate 24 MW of electricity.
Throughout the year, Dairyland welcomes area residents and visitors to enjoy the many recreational opportunities available on both the Reservoir and the public land surrounding it.
