DNR managers are proposing a new operating plan for the Rest Lake dam in Manitowish Waters.  But property owners want more time to give input. 

The draft order calls for reducing the fall water drawdown to 1 foot, compared to the current three-and-a-half foot drawdown.

DNR Northern Region Director John Gozdzialski explains taking out less water in the fall means there will be more water in the winter and early spring.
