Cedar Falls Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 44.93537   Longitude: -91.88922
99% of the effluent through this dam is through the power plant... what you see here is the only water not going through the power plant.  None of the roller gates were open... what you see here is just seepage around the gate.  Maybe in spring runoff there would be more flow.  This spillway is located in the Red Cedar River just north of Menomonie... go 2 miles north of I-94 and turn east on County Road BB, then drive 1.8 miles to the spillway.

Elk Creek Lake Spillway
:  View Video
Latitude: 44.81384   Longitude: -91.65466
Go west on County Road E from Eau Claire until you reach Dunn County... 0.2 miles into Dunn County on County Road E you will find a parking lot adjacent to the Spillway.  The other side of the spillway is private property.  Unless you are a mountain goat you cannot get down to the rivers edge below the spillway.  This picture was taken thru the chain link fence that borders the top of the parking area.

Lambs Creek Falls is in Central Dunn County.  Our Wisconsin Waterfalls Travel Guide provides detailed directions of where to find the "falls" along with GPS coordinates of the site.  When needed the travel guide also provides parking availability information, walking trail details and other information about the site.  The picture at left was taken in 1875... Lambs Creek flows into the Red Cedar River just south of the County Road G bridge over the Red Cedar River.  The video of this site shows the river as it is today at this location, directly across the river from where Lambs Creek enters... the dam in Cedar Falls has eliminated this 1875 waterfall that was 25 foot high when this picture was taken.

Menomonie Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 44.88387   Longitude: -91.92973
In August when this picture was taken the only effluent was through the power plant... none of the roller gates were open so the only flow was through the power plant.  Maybe in spring runoff there would be more flow through the gates.  The spillway is just north of downtown Menomonie on Route 25... take the first exit north of the bridge, to the left, onto Meadow Road and drive 300 yards to the spillway.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
