The City of Madison Engineering Division launched its Watershed Series in May 2018. During the studies, Engineers will work with eight watershed areas to determine flooding issues and how to design a more resilient stormwater system. This is a continued effort to address areas hardest hit by flooding last summer.
To address these issues, the City is conducting large watershed studies. In 2019 – 2020, the City will focus on the eight watershed studies. These studies will help the City identify existing problems, develop solutions, and prioritize improvements.
