Description

Rake for Our Lakes: The Importance of Urban Leaf Management

About this Talk

From banners on garbage trucks to billboards on the beltline, the City of Madison has a new approach to leaf management. After partnering with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to assess the impact of leaves on water quality leaving urban areas, the City has a whole new view on leaf collection and how it asks Madison residents to manage leaves in the fall. At this month’s Yahara Lakes 101 talk, City of Madison Water Resources Engineer Phil Gaebler will provide an overview of the research and findings from the USGS/City of Madison project. He’ll also discuss residential and municipal actions that can reduce the impact of leaves on our lakes.
