Kewaunee County officials have still not heard any details on the potential biogas plant slated for construction in the region. The state recently released its Request for Proposal for the estimated $20 million project that would convert liquid manure into a renewable energy source and be a part of the possible solution to groundwater issues plaguing large parts of the county. Kewaunee County Board member Lee Luft says with a tight timetable and the large scope of the project, elected officials should be kept up to date.
Luft says there are now indications that the project could be built anywhere in the Lake Michigan Drainage Basin, which includes Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan counties. Proposals for the project are due back May 1 with a decision on the contract expected by June 5.
