III. Get Current Info on Public Beach and Lake Water Quality
Although summer is winding down, many folks want to take a dip in our lakes. Unfortunately, many of our beaches have been closed off and on due the presence of blue-green algae. Be sure to check Public Health Madison & Dane County's page for water quality information and beach closures. Your pets can also be impacted by water quality and algal blooms, so be sure to keep them out of the water as needed.
IV. F35 Aircraft
Below you will find information and important dates related to the review of the F35 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Executive Summary of the EIS is here and the full report can be accessed here.
You are more than welcome to contact me and other elected officials with your thoughts on the proposed stationing of F35s at Truax Field, but I also encourage you to submit comments via the Air National Guard's official public comment channels as this is a decision being made by the federal government, not the City of Madison. Those comments can be made through September 27 and can be made online or by mail. The link for public comments can be accessed here.
The Air National Guard has scheduled a public open house on September 12, from 5-8pm at the Alliant Energy Center, and comments can also be made in person there. A final decision will be made early next year.
City staff from various departments are working on a review of the EIS, including impacts of noise, stormwater and other issues. The end result will likely be a response to the EIS from the Mayor's office, but the staff analysis will be shared when complete.
