The Kewaunee County Board is asking the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to conduct a water quality and aquatic life survey of the East Twin River and its tributaries. The DNR approved a permit for the Agropur cheese plant in Luxemburg to increase the amount of chloride they are allowed to discharge earlier this year. Kewaunee County Board supervisor and resolution author Lee Luft says time is of the essence.
The resolution passed by a 20-0 vote. It is now up to DNR on when they can get the time and the appropriate personnel to conduct the survey.
