The City of Madison will complete a watershed study in the East Isthmus & Yahara watershed (as shown below). The watershed study will identify causes of existing flooding and then look at potential solutions to try to reduce flooding. The study will use computer models to assist with the evaluations.The City of Madison has hired a consultant, Tetra Tech, Inc to complete the first half of the study where the existing conditions are modeled.
For more information please see the Flash Flooding Story Map .

Map of East Isthmus and Yahara River study area. It extends from east of the capitol to east of the Yahara River.

The East Isthmus & Yahara study area drains primarily to the Yahara River and parts on the far east and west sides of the watershed drain directly to Lake Monona. The study extends west past the isthmus Yahara River watershed because the surface water is connected to an area that drains directly to Lake Monona and it's important to study both together. The study extends to the east where a part of the watershed drains to Lake Monona because the City anticipates upcoming construction projects in this area, and therefore would like to have the stormwater system studied.

Timeline

The study is beginning Spring 2020 and is expected to take over 12 months. During this time, the City will look at watersheds as a whole to understand the interaction of flash flooding and the increased risk of flooding due to high lake levels. The East Isthmus and Yahara River watershed study will be done in two phases where a consultant will first develop an existing conditions model and analyze the impact of the Yahara River elevations on localized flash flooding. Following the completion of that work, the City will set up a separate contract for the solutions phase of the study.

Following the presentation, participants will have an opportunity to break out into smaller "focus groups" to discuss neighborhood-specific flooding issues. If you are unsure which neighborhood you live in, you can search your address in the top left corner of the neighborhood look-up map . The non-interactive map showing the anticipated focus groups is shown below: https://www.cityofmadison.com/engineering/projects/east-isthmus-and-yahara-river-watershed-study
