Madison reports on ongoing mudding of Lake Mendota in Madison county. The story reveals that at least 44,000 tons of dirt are sloughed into the lake every year, mostly by workers on nearby residential construction sites. The displacement of soil leads to erosion, clouds the water and fills the bays with silt and clay, the magazine reports. Authorities attempt to address the issue with tougher codes and ordinances.
