Dane County to purchase 79 acres in town of Middleton for wetland restoration, flood water storage
Dane County plans to buy 79 acres of land for $4 million at the source of Black Earth Creek in the town of Middleton to advance wetland restoration efforts and create more flood-water storage in an area that saw heavy rainfall and flooding in 2018.

The purchase would also expand the Black Earth Creek Natural Resource Area, which is adjacent to the land, County Executive Joe Parisi said Thursday.

The resource area offers some 94 acres for hiking, fishing and other outdoor activities...


Ken Notes: Why not pair these purchases with private sector investment to either get more land or spend less money...
