Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation chair Chuck Wagner says they are still gathering information before developing additional plans of action to help address its groundwater issues. In addition to the information presented by microbiologist Dr. Mark Borchardt at Tuesday’s meeting, the committee has also been collecting data concerning local septic waste spreading. Wagner says getting all the information they can will help them form better plans down the road.
Wagner says there are a number of things already being done to help address groundwater concerns such as a countywide winter manure spreading ordinance and farmers planting cover crops. He believes some of the additional information collected by the committee will be discussed at its next meeting.
