Environmental law center celebrates anniversary

From the farm fields of Kewaunee County to the shorelines Door County, Midwest Environmental Advocates has certainly made its mark on a number of local cases in its 20-year history. The environmental law center has tackled many water-related issues since it was formed in 1999. In Door County, it helped represent the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront in its battle in what was seen as a violation of the Public Trust Doctrine in 2016. Its focus has been on large farms in Kewaunee County, including its six-year battle over a water pollution permit that was issued to Kinnard Farms back in 2012. As that case prepares for its day with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, MEA staff member Peg Shaffer hopes it is just one example of how the organization has stuck by its clients in the name of the environment for 20 years.

The MEA will bring together other environmental advocates when it celebrates in 20th anniversary at the Kress Pavilion on October 3rd as a part of its Water Justice Series. You can find details for that event here.
