Last year was the wettest year on record in the Wisconsin River basin.
That meant reservoirs were full, and challenging spring weather could put stress on the system.
But the forecasts are looking better than anticipated.
The Wisconsin Valley Improvement Company manages flows on the Wisconsin River and operates five dams on major reservoirs.
The company had to aggressively draw down water levels over the winter after last year’s record precipitation.
But company vice president of operations Peter Hansen said the spring, so far, has been manageable.
