Cherokee Drive Storm Water Channel

Storm water "outfalls" as they empty into the Cherokee Drive storm water channel.

Storm water culvert in July, 2012 as it emerges from underground  into the open Cherokee Drive storm water channel.  The Cherokee Drive storm water channel flows behind the Thoreau School along Cherokee Drive  and below the playground in  Nakoma Park in Madison’s Nakoma Neighborhood.   The storm water goes blow ground again in  Nakoma Park at about the seasonal ice skating rink where it flows into a culvert that then directs it under Nakoma Road .  From there it enters the Manitou Way/Nakoma Road storm water pond (aka Secret Pond.)  From this point, after settling for a while, the storm water flows through the Arboretum’s West Marsh and onto Lake Wingra.
