Rep. Shankland sees Clean Water Initiatives helping area

Door and Kewaunee Counties will be getting an opportunity to expand access to clean drinking water, according to one state representative.  Rep. Kristina Shankland of Stevens Point, who was just chosen as the vice-chair of the Speaker’s Water Quality Task Force, is excited about Governor Tony Evers’ announced budget that includes $70 million in bonding to address water quality in Wisconsin.  Shankland says finding a solution has been long overdue. 


Shankland authored legislation to expand the Well Compensation Grant Program as well as Clean Water Initiatives.  She says with one in ten wells across Wisconsin being contaminated with undrinkable water, Governor Evers is taking immediate action to solve the problem the state is facing.
