Kewaunee County Board waits on state on water quality measures

It is now up to the state to act after the Kewaunee County Board nearly unanimously approved two water quality-related measures during its meeting on Tuesday. The board first threw its support behind a state Senate bill granting up to $2,500 to property owners to help remediate tainted wells with high levels of nitrates. It then passed a resolution requesting the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to extend testing of the Ahnapee River after Door County finishes its drawdown of the Forestville Millpond. Board chairperson Robert Weidner says it is important to keep up with items that could help improve its water.


The Kewaunee County Board also passed a third resolution unanimously that would ask construction crews to not use pavement sealers containing a toxic coal-tar base for county projects unless they are forced to by the state or federal government.
