Shutdown shuts out Borchardt's county presentation

Kewaunee County residents will have to wait a little bit longer to hear the details about the current state of its well water supply. Dr. Mark Borchardt from the United States Department of Agriculture was expected to speak during Tuesday’s Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation meeting. The government shutdown has left  Borchardt and thousands of other non-essential employees furloughed until further notice. Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee member Lee Luft notified of the agenda change and hopes they will be able to host Borchardt again in the future. The meeting will still take place in Luxemburg at the Land and Water Conservation Department at 10 a.m. and will feature an update on the area’s total maximum daily load study and further discussion on the land application of septic waste in the county.
