Dunn's Marsh Watershed Study
The City of Madison is completing a watershed study in the Dunn’s Marsh watershed (as shown below). The City of Madison has contracted with Stantec Consulting Services, Inc. to assist with study completion. The watershed study will identify causes of existing flooding and then look at potential solutions to try to reduce flooding. The study will use computer models to assist with the evaluations.

If anyone has experienced flooding, and is willing to share with the City, please report it on the City's website. Even if a homeowner reported flooding to 2-1-1, FEMA, or a City official, the City needs standardized information to create stormwater models that show existing flooding conditions. The flood data helps the City prioritize different flood projects and future watershed studies. Please report any flooding you’ve experienced.
