Well contamination study forum set

After presenting to the Midwest Manure Summit and the Kewaunee County Land and Water Committee earlier this year, United States Department of Agriculture microbiologist Dr. Mark Borchardt will present his well contamination findings straight to local residents. A follow-up to his report in 2017, Borchardt’s study showed the relationship between the distance of wells to manure pits and septic system drain fields and how that could possibly infect wells with dangerous pathogens. After Borchardt presented his findings to the Kewaunee County Land and Water Committee two months ago, chairperson Chuck Wagner said the information was not a big surprise.

The Kewaunee County presentation will be held June 20th at the Kewaunee County Fairground Expo Hall at 6 p.m., one day after Borchardt gives a similar talk in Egg Harbor at the Kress Pavilion.
