Pheasant Branch Creek — Where Does All That Water Come From?
We hear the term “watershed” a lot in reference to water resources, but what does that term really mean? Focusing on Middleton’s beloved Pheasant Branch Creek, we’ll explore how water moves from the edges of the watershed all the way to Lake Mendota. We’ll also take a look at the famous (or infamous) rain event and flood of August 2018 to get a glimpse of how climate change is already impacting Middleton.
