Wisconsin River Power Company Reminds Petenwell and Castle Rock Users to Exercise Caution During Spring High Flows

Necedah, WI – Wisconsin River Power Company (WRPC), which operates the Petenwell and Castle Rock dams on the Wisconsin River between Wisconsin Rapids and Wisconsin Dells, would like to remind everyone that as winter comes to an end and spring approaches with its warmer weather, river flows increase significantly. The increased flows can make activities on the flowages more dangerous during this time of year.

The Wisconsin River Drainage Area is approximately 12,280 sq. mi. which reaches from the southern end of Wisconsin far into the north woods. During spring thaw when the ground is still frozen and vegetation is dormant, warmer weather accompanied by rain may result in significant runoff leading to increased river flows. Residents, business owners and sport enthusiasts around the Wisconsin River should be aware of the current and forecasted weather and river conditions.

River users can check conditions on the WRPC Web site: for up-to-date information.
