Good news on bad water

Despite its water quality making national headlines in recent years, Kewaunee County Board Supervisor Lee Luft took some positives away from recent data released by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  The Wisconsin Well Water Quality study took a deep look at seventeen different factors, including contaminants like nitrates, bacteria, and lead. While Kewaunee County numbers in some of those areas are not great, Luft says there are counties worse off than them. He credits the various stakeholders in Kewaunee County for working together to address these issues that are going unnoticed in the rest of the state.

He believes their proactive steps have made Kewaunee County a leader when it comes to addressing water quality issues. The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee meets on November 12th to discuss these numbers as well as give updates on the area’s total daily maximum load study and its tile line discovery program.
