Governor Tony Evers says the federal Clean Water Act is working with help from a state program that funds water quality improvements. The Wisconsin Coastal Management grant program has paid for wetlands impact studies in Door County and lakeshore coastal recreational studies for Kewaunee County. Governor Evers says the successes of such grants show just how far water clean-up efforts have come since the Clean Water Act was created.
Governor Evers has presented coastal management grants to Iron County, Ozaukee County and Green Bay for water resource management, wetlands rehabilitation, and beach restoration.
