The public is encouraged to join the City in the next phase of its Watershed Studies, by attending upcoming public information meetings which will focus on data collected from residents. Each meeting will be specific to the area.

Wingra West:
6-8 p.m., March 16, 2020, Sequoya Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd., Madison, Wis.

For the first time, engineers will share the results of watershed modeling, which was created from summer 2018 flood reporting and field data. The models will show areas that require system or watershed-wide changes to support different amounts of rainfall.  A watershed is an area of land where precipitation that falls on it, drains to a common waterway, such as a stream or lake. The watershed acts like a funnel by collecting all the water within the area and channeling it to a single point.

During the upcoming meetings, City Engineering staff will also cover the next steps toward possible solutions to reduce flooding potential. City engineers will ask the public for review of the flood modeling mapping for their area and provide feedback.

This is part of the Engineering Division’s work toward finding possible solutions to flooding in the City. City Engineering is focusing on several watersheds on the City’s west side first, and then will focus on east side watersheds in 2020 and 2021.
