Video Presentation of 2018 Historic Flooding

In the wake of last summer's historic flooding, John Reimer, Assistant Director of the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department, gave 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 explained 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 also discussed new initiatives the County will include in its 2019 budget proposal to aid flood recovery, increase lake health, and build future resiliency.
