Weather advisory – flooding

August 21, 2018 By Meredith McGlone

Many parts of Madison and Dane County have experienced flooding due to heavy rains. The university remains open for normal operations on Tuesday.

We urge members of the campus community to use caution while driving. Do not attempt to drive through flooded streets.

Other important reminders:

Madison Metro is also experiencing service disruptions.

Employees are expected to report to work unless directed otherwise. Each employee is advised to use discretion and caution regarding their health and safety.

An employee who reasonably determines that it is not safe to travel will not be subject to discipline for being absent.

Supervisors are expected to honor reasonable requests of employees to arrive late or to leave early because of inclement weather. Employees are expected to notify their supervisors if they cannot report to work or will report late.
