Assembly water quality bill looks for support

After throwing its support behind Senate Bill 137 last month, the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee will discuss a similar Assembly proposal to help property owners with contaminated wells. Assembly Bill 21 would allow a well owner with an annual family income of $65,000 or less to apply for grants to test and make necessary changes to private wells contaminated with nitrates. Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee chairperson Chuck Wagner says outside of potential additional political points to be scored, there is not much of a difference between the two measures.

A resolution supporting Senate Bill 137 was nearly unanimously approved by the Kewaunee County Board last month. In addition to discussing Assembly Bill 21, the committee will also have an update about the ongoing Total Maximum Daily Load study and the stalled Brown County digester project when it meets in Luxemburg on Tuesday beginning at 8:15 a.m.
