Yahara Lakes 101: Suck the Muck at Token Creek
Event Dates
  • 09/24/2019 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Event Description

Dane County's "Suck the Muck" project has received a lot of exciting attention over the past year for their legacy sediment removal in Dorn Creek where they have removed three to four feet of sediment since 2016. Now on the second phase of the project, Dane County will begin the program in Token Creek. In this month's Yahara Lakes 101 talk, we'll hear from Dane County Executive Joe Parisi and Assistant Director of Land and Water Resources John Reimer about the project expansion. Attendees will get to see the phosphorus-laden sediment islands firsthand and learn about the removal process. Ultimately, this project will divert thousands of pounds of phosphorus from entering our lakes.
