Two week warning for Millpond drawdown

After two years of controversy, you will not see the Forestville Millpond drained anymore. The Door County Facilities and Parks Department announced on Tuesday it would begin refilling the Forestville Millpond on September 1st. Weather pending, the department hopes the millpond will be filled by October 1st. Over the next several years, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will stock the millpond with largemouth bass and bluegill. The drawdown began in November 2019 as a strategy to improve the millpond’s water quality, but it has been met with controversy. The Friends of the Forestville Dam along with others filed a complaint earlier this year to try and stop the drawdown, alleging that draining the millpond was transferring toxic sediment downstream and causing additional environmental hazards.
