Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee member Lee Luft knows they have a tough road ahead of them when it comes to identifying the location of all of the tile lines being used in farm fields across the area. Tile lines are used by farmers to drain excess moisture off their fields during periods of heavy rains and snowmelt. Unfortunately, it has also been a conduit for liquid manure if it is not spread in the right places. Luft says not only are finding proper maps a struggle, but locating the tile lines themselves is also a challenge.
Even with the struggles, Luft says Kewaunee County is taking a leadership role in identifying where the tile lines are, where they go, and the impact they have in the area. The topic highlights Tuesday’s committee meeting, which will be on Tuesday at the Land and Water Conservation building in Luxemburg beginning at 8:15 a.m.
