Madison, Dane County Development Leaves Troubled Lakes' Legacies

The Cap Times has produced a detailed account of the difficulties with lake levels in Madison, with decades of development and wetlands' losses as major contributord.

Not too different from what plagues Waukesha County, and why many in nearby Ozaukee and Jefferson Counties have been heard to say that they do not want to be the next Waukesha County.

I grew up in Madison during the late 50's and 60's. As a child, I spent nearly every afternoon in Lake Monona. the water was clear and clean until the mid 60's when weeds started showing up. Now the lake bottom is covered with weeds and the water is not very hospitable. I guess everything must change but it is really sad to see this happen

With the amount of fertilizers and pesticides sold to us by corporate america that now run freely into our lakes and rivers, you might want to think twice before putting your body in these places.
