Water quality task force should include Kewaunee County residents

A grassroots organization wants Kewaunee County residents and others whose groundwater has been contaminated by farm runoff represented on a proposed water quality task force.  The Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network is making that demand on Republican State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos who proposed the task force.  Network President Mary Dougherty says those impacted by groundwater contamination need to have a role in finding solutions.



Republican State Representative Todd Novak, whose district includes areas of groundwater contamination, is involved in the formation of the task force.  He says it's still a work in progress but will strive to ensure all voices about water quality issues are heard.



Vos announced the creation of the task force on January 3rd.  He said then that he plans to announce the task force's members in what he called "the coming weeks."
