Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Director Davina Boness and committee member Lee Luft will be featured speakers during a public hearing addressing water quality on Wednesday. Green Bay is one of 12 sites for public hearings for the Speaker’s Task Force on Water Quality, which began its statewide tour in May. Bonness and Luft will speak alongside Brown County officials about their local efforts addressing the issues facing the community and what else can be done to protect surface and groundwater. Luft encourages residents to come out and share their stories with members of the task force and the general public.
Wednesday’s hearing will take place Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. inside Fort Howard Hall at UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center. Other invited speakers during the session include representatives from the Wisconsin Wetlands Association, Fox Wolf Watershed Alliance, Wisconsin Realtors Association, and Alliance for the Great Lakes.
