The City of Madison Engineering Division launched its Watershed Study Program in January 2019. During the studies, Engineers will review the existing stormwater system to determine the causes of flooding and then develop projects to reduce the risk of flooding. This is a continued effort to address areas hardest hit by flooding in August 2018 and to create a more resilient stormwater system.
The map shows the study areas in progress or complete.
