High Waters Impact Ferry Service
CASSVILLE, Wisconsin - High water is causing problems for the ferry at Cassville, Wisconsin.
On Wednesday, the river was two feet higher than the Iowa connection, so ferry workers can't unload vehicles. On a typical day, the ferry makes 30 trips across the river, carrying as many as 12 to 13 cars at a time.
The only other time the ferry opened later than the Fourth of July was in 1993.
Cassville has taken a big financial hit with the ferry not operating.
The cost to ride is $15 per car and $8 per motorcycle. All ferry proceeds go to the city of Cassville.
