Pam Budda, Fort McCoy Outdoor Recreation manager, said the work at Pine View includes the construction of a new cabin, and the completion of installing electricity on the east side of Squaw Lake. Steve’s Carpentry of Tomah, Wis., is the general contractor for the new cabin. Xcel energy is installing the electrical upgrades.

“The new cabin will give us more lodging to offer to personnel staying at Pine View,” Budda said. “We’re expecting it to be completed by the end of November in time for the winter season, and it can be used year-round.”

The other ongoing project is finishing the installation of electrical upgrades on the east side of Squaw Lake.

That will allow people staying in that area to have lights, heating/air conditioning and cable television. Water and sewer connections to the area were completed in an earlier project, she said.

Sewer connections also are being added at Whitetail Ridge. Budda said this will replace a septic tank setup and provide more convenient service.

“This should improve the customer service and satisfaction in using the Whitetail Ridge facilities,” Budda said.
