Door County committees recommend draining mill pond

A pair of committees passed a resolution urging the Door County Board of Supervisor to approve a plan to temporarily drain the Forestville Mill Pond.  The Facilities and Parks Committee and the Land Conservation Committee meet in a joint session Thursday.  People attending the meeting were overwhelmingly against the two-year drawdown plan to remove sediment from the pond.  Some who live downstream say that would send pollution their way.  Others recommend farms upstream could be more proactive.

 

 

Committee Chair Dan Austad says the drawdown is needed to ensure public safety.

 

 

The committees' recommendation on the mill pond drawdown will go before the Door County Board of Supervisors at the January 22nd meeting.
