Flood Cleanup

Cleanup is set to begin Monday along the Wisconsin River, where debris clogged the waterway after a breach at Lake Delton destroyed five homes in June. A nonprofit group called Living Lands and Waters has been awarded a $77,000 contract to manage the cleanup. The state Department of Natural Resources says the group is very aggressive about water cleanup, and was especially aggressive about seeking out the DNR. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is paying 75 percent of the cost. State and local communities will cover the rest. The cleanup is expected to take about 25 days. The breach in the lake June 9 sent water rushing to the Wisconsin River, destroying five homes and a portion of a nearby highway.
