Yahara Lakes Advisory Group (YLAG)

The Yahara Lakes Advisory Group (YLAG), composed of key stakeholders responsible for management of the Yahara River system, was convened by Ken Johnson (DNR Lower Rock River Water Leader) in 2001. The Group met 14 times over a period of 10 months, from October 2001 until late July 2002. The Group's final report and recommendations are found below.

Dane County Department of Land and Water Resources and Wisconsin DNR staff periodically update a status report on YLAG recommendations. This document was most recently updated in July 2008.
