Presentation on Door County's vulnerability to water contamination Wednesday

You can listen to a noted Wisconsin geologist and hydrologist speak on the groundwater quality challenges facing Door County at a special program being held in Sturgeon Bay this week.  Dr. Maureen Muldoon, PhD., will present “Why Is the Silurian Dolomite Aquifer So Vulnerable to Contamination?” at Crossroads at Big Creek on Wednesday, September 13th.  In 2016-17, Dr. Muldoon was part of a team of scientists who studied private well contamination in Kewaunee County.  She says the challenge to groundwater quality for people living in Door and Kewaunee counties is the lack of soil depth to bedrock and the impact of manure runoff throughout the peninsula.



Dr. Muldoon recently returned to the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey where she conducts groundwater research.  Her presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek on Wednesday and will last about 45 minutes, followed by a question-and-answer period.  The free program hosted by the Door County Environmental Council can also be watched on a Zoom link at
