MADISON (WKOW) The City of Madison is trying to learn from last year’s historic flooding.

It’s studying why some areas were hit harder than others.

That process includes public meetings like one on Monday night at Asbury United Methodist Church.

City engineers are talking with neighbors to identify problem spots and develop solutions.

One woman at the meeting said she’s interested in the city’s plan because she’s never seen flooding like last year in her more than 40 years in Madison.

“It was really scary. Don’t want to have that happen again. It was very scary,” said Kathy Brinkman of Madison.

The city is studying eight specific area on the west and near west sides.

It expects the whole process to take a year-and-a-half.
