Progress slow for Forestville Dam drawdown

Snow melt and heavy rains, mixed with frozen ground, has caused flooding across the Door Peninsula in recent weeks. It has also halted progress at the Forestville Dam concerning the county’s plan to drawdown the millpond. Parks Department Superintendent Ben Nelson says there are no restrictions in the current phase regarding flowage.

 


The drawdown is being monitored by the county but there is no sampling being undertaken. Nelson says that Door County has been in active communication with Kewaunee County as the millpond flows into the Ahnapee River which winds south and east until it dumps into Lake Michigan.
