Clean Lakes Alliance Supports Edgewater Development
Organization Lauds Plans to Create Better Public Access to LakeshoreMADISON, Wis. — The Clean Lakes Alliance today issued a statement in support of the Edgewater development project. The Alliance specifically lauded the projects plan to improve public access to the waterfront as part of the development. Every year, thousands of people enjoy spending time on the water at events sponsored by the Clean Lakes Alliance, said the Alliance’s president, Don Heilman. From our annual Clean Lakes Festival to Aquapalooza, we see how much people here love getting out on the water. We are very pleased that the Edgewater development includes plans not only for more public access but also for better public access to the downtown shore of Lake Mendota. Heilman also noted that the project includes measures to mitigate storm water run-off and help protect the water quality of Lake Mendota. Plans call for minimizing the amount of sediment, oil and grease that enters the lake both during and after construction, he said. This will be an improvement over where we are now, because storm water currently runs untreated directly into the lake.
And….we’re back!Greetings Lake Fans! Hope everyone had a great summer. We sure did – lots of activities and even more meetings! Our momentum is almost breathtaking. So much to share…so little room. We’ll have more summer fun updates next month. Sincere thanks for your continued support.
Dane County Water Champion Awards
In early June, the Clean Lakes Alliance hosted an awards reception at the Edgewater Hotel. This is the second year we have hosted the event, and we were happy to be part of the special awards going to Kathleen Falk and Dave Cieslewicz for their support and love of our lakes. Great lake friends, and fun fare – culminating in a sweet thunderstorm rolling across Lake Mendota.
