The Southern Door Fire Department will meet with the Door County Soil and Water Department to consider an alternative fill-up site at the Forestville Mill Pond. The 94-acre pond is scheduled to be drained later this year as part of a water quality improvement project. Southern Door Assistant Fire Chief Randy Massart says the department will propose creating a new fill site near the Forestville Dam.
Southern Door Fire Fighters and the County Soil and Water Department will meet Friday afternoon at the mill pond for informal discussion. The drawdown of the Forestville Mill Pond would last two years before it is refilled.
