Members from the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee got the answers they needed from Door County’s plan to drawdown the Forestville Mill Pond over the next two years. Door County conservationist Erin Hanson gave her presentation detailing the plans to a full room at the Land and Water Conservation Department Tuesday morning. Members of the general public spoke for and against the drawdown during the open comment period. Chairperson Chuck Wagner believes the committee has a firm understanding of the process Door County went through to decide on the proper way to drain the mill pond and the benefits it could bring.
The Land and Water Conservation committee took no action on the issue during the meeting and it will be discussed during an upcoming Kewaunee County personnel committee meeting.
