The annual Take a Stake in Our Waters shoreline trash and aquatic debris collection by Dane County Lakes Management barges begins on:
Lakes Mendota & Kegonsa
Monday, July 24, 2017
Lakes Monona & Waubesa
Monday, July 31, 2017
YES: Aquatic vegetation (lake weeds, algae), debris washed up on shore (trash, dead fish, etc.)
NO: Yard waste or brush (grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs), household waste (garbage, pet waste, etc.)
Barges will make ONE pass around the lake. Have debris on your pier by 6 am Monday so you don’t miss the collection. It may be a few days until they get to your pier. If the water adjacent to your pier is too shallow to allow our access from the water, we may not be able to pick up debris from your pier.

If you don't currently reside at your lakefront property, please make sure that those who live there are aware of this shoreline debris collection.
