Wisconsin gets clean water grants

Door and Kewaunee County may see improved drinking water thanks to grants from the federal government. The EPA announced that Wisconsin will be receiving about $43 million from the Clean Water Fund Program and about $18 million from the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program. This is aimed at making improvements to aging water and wastewater infrastructures. Dean Hoegger, executive director of the Clean Water Action Council of Northeast Wisconsin says one of the main problems these funds should be used to help address is lead coming from older drinking water pipes.



What specifically will be done with the funds has not been determined yet but could be allocated towards wastewater issues in Kewaunee County. The federal funds will help replace the $40 million that was originally in the state budget but have been turned down by the Legislature.
