Residents of Kewaunee County will be able to have their questions answered when it comes to tainted drinking water in Northeast Wisconsin. Dr. Mark Borchardt, a research microbiologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will be addressing some of the suspicions that community members have about potential causes including livestock farming, human waste, and aquifer geology. More importantly, he is excited about discussing ways to understand and prevent contamination with people that are excited to do so.
He adds that it hasn’t always been this way but it has changed recently and definitely for the greater good.
Dr. Borchardt will be presenting his program June 19th at 7 PM at the Kress Pavilion and the next night at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg at 6.
