WILL NOT PICK UP

Dane County LWRD informed FOLKS they will not pick up weeds that grow on shore, including in riprap, because they are not growing in the lake. They stress that the pick up is for lake debris only. The top two pictures show weeds LWRD will not pick up.

Partnering with Dane County, FOLKS provides bi-weekly pick-up of aquatic plants AND debris from the end of piers on Lake Kegonsa and the near north Yahara River inlet. Removing aquatic plants removes phosphorus and keeps the lake cleaner and safer. In 2022, 44 barge loads of plants were removed from Lake Kegonsa. 

FOLKS is continuing to fund the Aquatic Debris Pick-up program through payments to the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department.
