Shoreline Plans and Guidelines
Wisconsin River Power Company plans concern the use of its hydroelectric project lands
adjacent to the Petenwell and Castle Rock flowages (Shoreline Commons Areas) on the
Wisconsin River near Necedah, WI. By selecting the links, you can learn what uses of the
project lands are allowed by WRPCO and those uses that are prohibited (e.g. the clear
cutting of "view corridors" to the flowages from private property outside the project),
plans for stabilizing the shoreline, and the plan for protecting Bald Eagles.
- Shoreline Commons Area Vegetation Management Plan
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has requested that WRPCO develop a
consistent Vegetation Management Plan (VMP):
- SCA Development Application
Guidelines and instructions for the Shoreline Commons Area Development Application
- 3rd Party Land Use Requests
3rd Party requests for certain activities on WRPCO-owned property require the services of
WRPCO to conduct a due diligence environmental review and approve the requested activity.
To initiate the WRPCO review process, fill out the attached application, including the information
and application fee detailed in the request form.
- Bald Eagle Management Plan
WRPCO includes bald eagle management areas into the land management plan on WRPCO–owned
land within the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) project boundary.
- Shoreline Erosion Monitoring and Stabilization Plan
WRPCO annually conducts surveys to monitor existing areas of erosion and to identify new
areas of erosion on the WRPCO-owned land within the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC) project boundary.
