"Madison Lakes and Nearby Waters" Report

A special daylong event, "Madison's Lakes and Nearby Waters," took place Friday, November 11, 2005 at Monona Terrace in downtown Madison, as part of the North American Lake Management Society's 25th Annual International Symposium. Expert presentations addressed the latest research and developments about Dane County lakes, streams, and groundwater. They also emphasized important future challenges that will require an integrated approach with strong citizen support and involvement to effectively manage, protect and restore our local waters.

The winter 2005 issue of NALMS' quarterly LakeLine magazine summarizes the session presentations and serves as a springboard for future actions coordinated by the state and local managers in parthership with interested citizens.

Many thanks for the generous contributions from the following sponsors that helped make the event possible: Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Burish Group of UBS Financial Services Inc., Madison Gas and Electric Foundation, Yahara Lakes Association, and the Dane County Lakes and Watershed Commission.
