Presentation to Address Historic Flooding and Control of Lake Levels

Monday, November 26, 2018

In the wake of last summer's historic flooding, John Reimer, Assistant Director of the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department, will give a public presentation on how the levels on the Yahara chain of lakes are controlled. Mr. Reimer is responsible for lake level management, including aquatic plant harvesting and operation of the three dams in the Yahara chain of lakes. He'll explain what contributed to last summer's historic flooding, why managing lake levels is difficult, and what is planned to improve control of lake levels in the future. He'll also discuss new initiatives the County will include in its 2019 budget proposal to aid flood recovery, increase lake health, and build future resiliency. This presentation is free and open to all members of the public.
