All lakes are above summer maximum water levels. The goal is to continue to lower lake levels. The dams at Babcock County Park and LaFollette County Park are completely open in full flow condition and their associated locks are open for navigation. The "slow-no-wake" order for Lakes Monona, Waubesa, and Kegonsa has been removed.

Lake Monona Water Levels:

  • Wednesday, June 21: 847.22' ASL (Peak)
  • Wednesday, July 4: 846.70' ASL
  • Wednesday, July 18: 846.24' ASL
(For reference, the two highest levels in recent history were 847.86' ASL on June 16, 2008 and 847.48' ASL on June 15, 2000.)


NOTE: Tonyawatha and Winnequah Trail boat launches are currently closed for construction. Monitor Alerts and view maps here.

To ensure collection, residents must have their brush at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on Monday of their collection week. The City requests that residents not place brush at the curb more than two (2) weeks before their scheduled collection date.
NOTICE: The size of your brush pile must be no larger than 4 feet high x 4 feet wide x 10 feet long (4' x 4' x 10'). See Monona Yard Waste Collection Page for more information.

Yard Waste (not brush) can be brought to the Monona Public Works garage, 851 Femrite Drive (entrance on Edna Taylor Parkway) throughout the summer.
