Missing Black River Falls Dam gate spotted downstream

Replacement Gate for Broken Dam

BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (WKBT) - Officials in Jackson County say high waters are receding after last week's heavy rain.

The missing gate that flood waters ripped from the Black River Dam is now partially visible downriver.

Crews are working on getting a temporary gate put in place, but that process could take some time before the new gate is approved for installation.

Officials say the Black River is now considered navigable for boats, but warn that debris like large trees may still be in the water.
