Lake Zumbro hydro pictures from last week

Last week the Lake Zumbro hydroelectric dam had water measured at over eight feet over the crest of the dam. Below are pictures of the lake level at the normal operating level and then pictures from last week. All photos taken last week were taken by trained RPU staff.
