DNR water quality webinar scheduled for Thursday

The Department of Natural Resources is conducting a series of web presentations this summer on the development of the Northeast Lakeshore total maximum daily load, or TMDL. The region includes Kewaunee and Southern Door Counties, focusing on water quality regarding phosphorous and sediment contamination.  When calculating the TMDL, state officials determine how much runoff area watersheds can handle while comparing that to the amount of pollution that is occurring. From that baseline, the DNR works on calculating an acceptable amount of contamination from individual sources. Water Resource Engineer Kevin Kirsch explains when the new allocations would go into effect.

 


The second webinar is scheduled for Thursday morning at 10 AM. It will be discussing data collected by the agency in the initial phases of the TMDL process. A link for more information can be found here.
