They would like to determine if excess nutrients, erosion, land uses, climate – anything that might be adding to problems in the lake.

Officials blame the death of the fish on algae blooms for creating conditions leading to the fish kill. An early spring and hot summer created optimum algae growth, while heavy June rainstorms added nutrients to the water.

Persistent High Lake Levels Set Stage for Big Flood - Heavy rains caused widespread flooding in the Madison area. When Lake Monona crested, officials began harvesting the aquatic vegetation in an effort to increase the water flow out of the chain of lakes. Staff used ten mechanical weed harvesters to remove over 270 loads of aquatic plants.
