NOTICE: During week of June 12th; the Middleton, Rhinelander, and Rice Lake offices of the USGS Water Science Center have transitioned to a new data management software package. While you may not have noticed this transition, some sites may have problems or delays in being updated. We are actively monitoring these conditions and are resolving them as quickly as possible.

Raw stage data will still be available for select COE Stations at the following link: US Army Corps - RiverGages.com; and for select NWS Stations at the following link: National Weather Service - River Observations; in case of an emergency please call our office at (608) 828-9901.

This is a Wisconsin Wild River

The precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 30 days. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least annually, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality-assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
