Healthy Lakes. Healthy Communities.

I recently attended the Yahara Lakes Community Breakfast which was coordinated by the Clean Lakes Alliance. At the event I learned a lot about efforts underway to clean the Yahara Lakes chain, which includes Lakes Mondota, Monona, Waubesa and Kegonsa. With action plans in place, experts believe that we have an opportunity to make real and lasting improvements in the health of our lakes and waterways. The identified key and goal is to reduce phosphorus loading in the lakes by 50% by 2025.
