It is another day and another informational hearing for those wanting to learn more about the two-year drawdown of the Forestville Mill Pond. With organizational assistance from First District Rep. Joel Kitchens, members of the Department of Natural Resources staff will answer questions about what the public can expect during and after the drawdown takes place. Door County Conservationist Erin Hanson gave a presentation about its plan to improve the water quality and remove invasive species from the mill pond during the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation meeting earlier this month. She said at that time that it is important to provide accurate information to all those concerned.
Opponents to the drawdown plan say it would release additional agricultural run-off into an already impaired waterway as well as eliminate a fill site for local fire departments. The informational meeting is scheduled for April 1st at Algoma City Hall at 3 p.m.
