Video: Smokestack comes down

ALMA, Wis. (WQOW) –  One of the most visible remnants of an old power plant came down Monday morning in Alma.

Dairyland Power safely  imploded a 700 ft. tall smokestack around 8 a.m.

It was part of Dairyland’s Alma Station. Dairyland is in the process of dismantling the plant.

As part of the process, and for safety reasons, Highway 35 was closed for a short period of time surrounding the implosion.
