Septic application presentation highlights committee meeting

Septic and sludge application is not a common practice in Kewaunee County, but it is still drawing some attention at the Land and Water Conservation meeting this week. Alexis Peter from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will give the presentation on septic and sludge application, which spreads the waste on some fields in similar fashion to how farmers distribute manure. Committee member Lee Luft says the interest in the topic comes after studies have shown pathogens from bovine and human sources are playing in a role in water quality issues.

The Land and Water Conservation committee will have a public hearing on a comprehensive plan amendment before its regular Tuesday meeting at 8:15 a.m. at their office in Luxemburg.
