Dane County Weedcutter Access to Monona Bay



The City of Madison Engineering and Parks Divisions are proposing to dredge an area approximately 150 feet in length and 80 feet in width, in Monona Bay.  The dredging will take place northeast of West Shore Drive, near its intersection with Parr Street.  Approximately 1000 cubic yards of material will be removed.


The purpose of the dredging is to provide the Dane County weed harvesters a second port for offloading.  This area was historically used for offloading while the lake levels were higher than average, but due to lowered water levels and accumulated sediment, the area is no longer useable.
