Dates stay set for groundwater ordinance in Kewaunee County

With bands of snow and rain expected to hit the area over the next two weeks, Kewaunee County farmers will have to wait a little longer in some spots to spread manure on their fields. The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee moved their meeting up nearly two weeks in case it was possible to sunset the ordinance ahead of the usual April 15th date. County leaders have credited the ordinance for helping protect the groundwater during a usually vulnerable time, especially for farmers that use land with shallow soils to bedrock. Department Director Davina Bonness, Committee Chairperson Aaron Augustian, and present committee members Milt Swagel, Duane Ducat, and Kim Kroll all agreed that it is something to consider if the stars align again, but this is not the year.

 

 

Bonness announced that the next round of well testing will take place on May 13th, with the hopes of opening registration next week. The county received three donations to help reduce the cost for well-owners wishing to participate.
