Kewaunee County to ask for TMDL study extension

You can thank the drawdown of the Forestville Millpond for a potential delay in the final report regarding the health of the Ahnapee Watershed. The Kewaunee County Executive Committee unanimously approved a resolution requesting a testing extension on the Ahnapee River by two years. The study of the impaired waterway was supposed to conclude this November, which is right about when the drawdown of Forestville Millpond was set to begin. The drawdown of the mill pond is expected to take place over the next two years. Kewaunee County Chairperson Robert Weidner says it only makes sense to ask the Department of Natural Resources for more time.

A resolution will go before the Kewaunee County Board for its approval during its meeting on May 21st. The Ahnapee River was part of the DNR’s Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study that would develop a plan aiming to control pollutants and improve water quality over time.
