Rain adds to well testing importance

Your annual well test in Door and Kewaunee Counties should be even more urgent than in years past. The timing between expected rainfall and manure spreading has been challenging to say the least this year for farmers, with much of eastern Wisconsin currently under a moderate to extreme runoff advisory. Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Department Director Davina Bonness says its voluntary well testing program is even more important this year because of the fall timing and the wet weather.

Bonness says farmers are talking about taking extra precautions this fall due to the groundwater concerns, which include split applications and doubling its setbacks. You can learn more about how you can participate in the voluntary well testing program in Kewaunee County, which is available for a fee, below.
