MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Division of Pure Sources has issued new consumption warnings for fish taken from the Yahara chain of lakes and waterways in Dane and Rock counties after checks confirmed elevated ranges of PFAS contamination.
The company recommends one meal per thirty days of crappies, largemouth bass, northern pike and walleyes. The division recommends just one meal per week of bluegill and pumpkinseed.
The advisories apply to fish taken from Wingra and Starkweather creeks, lakes Monona, Kegonsa Waubesa, Higher and Decrease Mud lakes and the Yahara River downstream to the Rock River.
The suggestions come after checks revealed elevated ranges of PFAS in a number of fish species in lakes Monona, Kegonsa and Waubesa.
