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.
