.Debris in Lake Mendota at the Wisconsin Union
The State Journal's editorial board identified cleaning up Madison lakes as one of the board's five agenda items for 2012.
"Cleaning up Madison's lakes is one of the key priorities of the State Journal editorial board this year. Enough with the stinky green muck, dangerous algae and thick weeds ruining summer fun in and around the water. The health and beauty of our lakes — as well as Madison's image as a great place to live and work — are at stake."
"Please lend a hand in the weeks ahead."
