Dane County officials say they are working on ways to prevent flooding along the Yahara chain of lakes. Land and Water Resources Department officials say lots of rain this summer sent several of the lakes to record high levels and the county is considering a number of ways to prevent that from happening again. John Reimer, the assistant director of the county’s Land and Water Resources Department tells television station W-K-O-W that the department is convening a technical work group looking at different remedies, putting it together in a report so we can provide that information to the public, and then the public will then provide input on what they’d like to see as a solution. The county is also dedicating money in the 2019 budget for projects to reduce the potential of flooding. One of those projects removes sediment and weeds that can keep water from flowing down the chain of lakes.
