Lake Delton debris removed from Wisconsin River

Email

About 120 tons of debris that got flushed away with Lake Delton in June have been removed from the Wisconsin River downstream.

Matt Frank, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources secretary, says a 20-mile stretch of the river is now safe for navigation.

The Living Lands and Waters group of East Moline, Ill., got a $77,000 contract to remove about 90 piles of debris, most of it from the five houses that were destroyed or damaged.
