White River Hydro Generating Station

Key facts:


White River Hydro plant is an automatic plant located seven miles south of Ashland, Wisconsin. White River Hydro is operated as a run-of-the-river operation where water is traversed along a 1500 foot pipeline running from the dam to the power plant. The water returns to the river channel as it exits the plant. Many people fish the stretch of river below the plant during spring steelhead and fall salmon runs.

Environmental Highlights

A boat landing on the White River Flowage, just above the dam, provides a launch for fishermen who fish the impoundment for northern pike. Many people fish the stretch of river below the plant during the spring. Canoeists also use the river's flow above and below the dam.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
