The cause of the overflow was due to high volumes of water and plumbing issues from the Hoyt Park Restroom Facility, which were corrected after turning off its water supply.

In accordance with Wisconsin State Law, this incident was reported in compliance with both the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Administrative Code and the City of Madison's Capacity, Maintenance, Operations & Management (CMOM) Program.
