On January 13th, 2021, Clean Lakes Alliance honored groups and individuals at a special edition of Clean Lakes 101 Science Café. Clean Lakes 101: Awards, Accomplishments, & Ambitions, included the 2020 Community Awards presentation in which Clean Lakes Alliance recognized the accomplishments of individuals, volunteers, businesses, and other entities working to protect and improve our Yahara lakes.
A message from Bob Miller, Mayor of Monona, for the 2015 State of the Lakes Annual Report:
“Although Monona is confined to less than 3.5 square miles of total land size, we are blessed with more than four miles of waterfront on Lake Monona and the Yahara River. This waterfront represents one of the crown jewels of our community. We work closely with Clean Lakes Alliance on water-related projects from the annual Loop the Lake bike ride to promoting our brand new, state-of-the-art Lottes Park boat ramp. Clean Lakes Alliance has been very responsive in supporting our aggressive stormwater treatment programs, where we replace a number of old and decaying stormwater outlets with baffle systems to remove sediment and pollutants.
