The Kewaunee County Board will vote on a resolution Thursday that would officially state their support for implementing the recommendations made by the Department of Natural Resources workgroups last year. Three workgroups focused on the short-term solutions, compliance, and best management practices associated with the groundwater issues in Kewaunee County. Passed by the Land and Water Conservation Committee earlier this month, Kewaunee County Board Member Lee Luft hopes these become more than just ideas written down on a piece of paper.
The DNR workgroups were made up of farmers, officials at all levels of government, and concerned citizens that met several times over the course of more than a year. If approved, the resolution will be sent to state and federal legislators and the department heads of agricultural and environmental-related agencies.
