Adaptive Management Plan
During the prelicensing consultation for the Petenwell and Castle Rock
Hydroelectric Project, the Wisconsin DNR and the US Fish & Wildlife
Service proposed consideration of operational modifications that may afford
for the protection and enhancement of natural resources. Studies regarding
the impacts of the operational modifications could not be adequately
implemented without creating significant delay in the relicensing process.
Therefore the new license for the project included provisions for the study
of the impact of operational modifications through the development of an
Adaptive Management Plan.
