Flowage Level Drawdown North Of Taylors Falls/St. Croix Falls
Beginning October 2, Xcel Energy will be lowering the level of the flowage upstream from Taylors Falls/St. Croix Falls by up to 6 feet. This is to allow for repair to flashboards on the dam that were damaged by high water in September.
The use of personal watercraft, commonly known as jetskis, is prohibited on the St. Croix River from the north city limits of Stillwater, MN north to Gordon Dam and on the Namekagon River from its confluence near Riverside, WI east to the Namekagon Dam near Cable, WI.

Did You Know?
Winged maple leaf mussels were thought to be extinct until some were rediscovered in the St. Croix River in 1987. Today scientists are helping to raise young mussels and re-introducing them into their former range including St. Croix National Scenic Riverway to help prevent future extinction.
