Note: A recent peak into a book showed the following description of low water in the summer of 1886, on the Menominee River “The low water level in the River severely affected work in the paper mills, and it was anticipated that the mills would have to close down if it did not rain soon. In addition, Marinette was without electric lights, since water was needed to generate electricity. Residents were, as a result, relying on the light from kerosene lamps.”
