DNR adjustments hope to reduce water levels on Vern Wolf Lake

by

KENOSHA COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The state DNR has made adjustments on a dam, to reduce high water levels on a Kenosha County lake.

Officials said Monday that a board was removed from an inlet to the dam at Vern Wolf Lake, and it was successful in dropping waters that rose due to heavy rains.

The DNR said a levee was in danger of failing along Vern Wolf Lake at the Richard Bong Recreation Area – and that threat should be eased with the drawdown.

As a precaution, Kenosha County authorities closed part of Highway 75 in the area – and it continues to be shut down. Several trails in the Bong Recreation Area have also been closed for now.
