The City of Monona's public works crews have begun collecting leaves for the fall season. Residents can rake them to the curb at any time for collection by the vacuum trucks. To keep them from polluting Lake Monona, leaves must be removed from the streets, curb and gutter, and storm drains. The City is hoping that you can assist by raking your leaves off the streets and to the terrace for collection. City crews make their rounds as fast as possible, but they cannot be on every street every week. So please do your part to help keep the phosphorus from the leaves from reaching Lake Monona. An overabundance of phosphorus feeds algae blooms in the summer. View more information on fall leaf collection or read more on how you can do more by adopting a storm drain in your neighborhood.
