The Village of Rock Springs was flooded during historic flooding of the Baraboo River in 2008, 2018 and 2019. Repetitive flooding caused extensive damage to the library and community center, downtown businesses and destroyed housing, creating a need for the Village to relocate essential operations out of the floodway. The village is constructing a new municipal building which houses the library, community center, fire station, public works and village hall. Village infrastructure is also being upgraded and repaired. The Village is pursuing CDBG Disaster Recovery funding to assist with development of replacement housing.
