Dane County Lakes and Watersheds
World Water Day is an international day of action to raise awareness about water and remind us all that no water is wastewater. Several organizations in Dane County have come together to organize a week of events (March 18-March 25) to celebrate our precious water resources. We hope that you will join us!

Dane County is blessed not only with amazing water resources, but also thousands of people who care deeply about protecting, improving and enjoying these resources today and long into the future. These folks make up the Dane County Watershed Network! The Watershed Network connects, learns, and collaborates is through a series of Watershed Network Gatherings held throughout the year.
The first gathering of the year is March 22 and will focus on Effective Communication Strategies and Working Towards Behavior Change. Find out more and RSVP HERE.
This event is free and open to the public.
The Office of Lakes and Watersheds is one division of the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department. We aim to protect and improve the water resources of Dane County by coordinating with other department and agency staff, water-related citizen groups, the Dane County Lakes and Watershed Commission, and a myriad of other partner organizations in the area.
In 2014, the Office of Lakes and Watersheds expanded its community engagement program and created several new programs and partnerships with the goal of engaging more residents in Dane County and working together to improve our water resources.
