ELLSWORTH -- After years of lobbying by property owners, the Pierce County Board has approved amendments to the county's St. Croix Riverway Ordinance that will make it easier, and in some cases possible, for residents along the river to repair, remodel, add on to or even replace their cabins or houses.

The shipping season opened Saturday on the Mississippi River when the barge Phyllis passed through Lock and Dam 3 at 4:27 p.m. in Red Wing, towing 10 barges upstream. "This year has been kind of late due to the amount of ice on Lake Pepin," said Shannon Bauer, spokesman for the U.S. Corps of Engineers. "If the tows can't get past Lake Pepin, they can't go upstream." The average opening for the shipping season during the past 10 years is March 17.

Although the formal evaluation of the drawdown of Pool 8 near La Crosse, Wis., is not yet complete, it has been judged successful. The return to the lower water during the summers of 2001 and 2002 did allow areas along the river's edge to dry out and create ideal conditions for aquatic plants to grow and thrive. These restored areas now can serve as a foundation for aquatic life providing food and shelter for fish and wildlife. The interagency group that worked on the drawdown is looking at other options for water level reductions elsewhere on the river.
