The City of Madison is in the process of designing a replacement for the Lake Wingra Dam. The dam controls the water level of Lake Wingra and the flow rate into Wingra Creek. The city has hired Ayres Associates to do the actual design. Construction is planned for late 2008 or 2009.
Prior to beginning the design, the city hired Strand Associates, Inc. to perform a study of the existing dam structure to determine if it should be replaced or just repaired. The report recommended replacement.
