A coalition of local environmental groups is forming to address the issues of water quality in Door and Kewaunee counties. Protect Our Water (POW!) will collaborate on protecting water as both an environmental issue and a community health concern as well. Lynn Utesch from POW! and Kewaunee CARES says a lot of organizations are signing on to join the group because of the lack of progress being made.
Utesch says there has been interest from organizations from outside the county to join the coalition, but will wait until after POW! officially forms before admitting them and getting to work on issues in the region.
