Chair shares presentation frustration

Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation chair Chuck Wagner shares the frustration of many residents about United States Department of Agriculture microbiologist Dr. Mark Borchardt’s presentation being put on hold, but understands why it had to be done. Borchardt was expected to share the technical details of his additional study of the area’s water supply after linking the quality of the natural resource to recharge events in the spring and fall in 2017. The government shutdown is to blame for Borchardt not being able to give his presentation at risk of jail time and fines. Wagner understands why residents are anxious about the results since many participated in workgroups concerning groundwater issues for five years. He also knows government can be slower than what people want.

Wagner says if the government shutdown ends before its next meeting that Borchardt will give his presentation then for the committee. A bigger event for the community to attend and ask questions in the future could also be in the works.
