Kewaunee County patient with dam drawdown

Kewaunee County officials plan on reaching out to their counterparts in Door County after a two-year drawdown plan of the Forestville Millpond was approved earlier this week. Many Kewaunee County residents traveled to Sturgeon Bay Tuesday to voice their concerns about the plans, fearing agricultural runoff in the water could further contaminate the Ahnapee River. Kewaunee County Land and Water Chairperson Chuck Wagner says the river cannot get much worse since it is already on the state’s impaired water listing. He is among those that still have questions moving forward.

Wagner says it is likely they will invite members of the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department to its upcoming meeting in March to answer question their committee might have.
