Repairs started on dam near Lake Delton
Repairs started Monday on the dam that's close to where Lake Delton got flushed down the Wisconsin River a month and a-half ago.
A breach created a channel that washed away the lake, five homes, and a good share of Lake Delton's summer tourist economy.
Last week, the village agreed to spend $1.5 million to improve the dam. The approaches to the gates will be reshaped so they can handle more water - and emergency spillways will be installed on both sides of the dam.
