Parks superintendent explains the benefits behind drawdown

Ben Nelson, the superintendent of the Door County Facilities & Parks Department, has explained the benefits of drawing down the Forestville Millpond for two years. At a meeting last June, a report was given by the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department detailing the issues the Millpond was facing and listing several possible solutions that the town could use to improve the quality of its water.  Of the 10 solutions, the two-year drawdown was identified as being the most plausible option. Nelson said cost was a big factor in the department's decision to recommend the millpond over another preferred option.



There will be a hearing on Wednesday to update the public on information about the pond and hear comments from residents. The Southern Door Fire Department and the president of the Village of Forestville, Terry McNulty, have both previously expressed concerns about the project.
