Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Chippewa Falls officials have voted to ban certain activities around the Glen Loch Dam at a meeting Tuesday night.
News 18 reported earlier this year about the proposal. City staff tell News 18 a measure to effectively ban jumping off the dam passed 6-1 Tuesday. Parks Director Dick Hebert had previously told News 18 he’d seen people get seriously hurt when jumping off.
City staff clarify this doesn’t prohibit swimming below the dam.
A railing will also be put up around the dam to prevent people from jumping.
