*UPDATED* ATTENTION BOATERS
Posted 9/11/2014 by hgehrt@co.wood.wi.us
This project has been currently put on hold and the refilling of Dexter Lake has been started as of 09-11-2014. No further draw downs will occur this year.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 02, 2014, Dexter Lake will be lowered at a rate of 4 inches per day until the lake has been lowered a total of 3 feet.
The purpose of the water lowering is to enable the Department of Transportation to complete necessary repairs to the Highway 80 bridges adjacent to Dexter Lake.
During this time the boat landings may become unusable to boaters.
This project is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.
