The Department of Natural Resources will provide information to concerned residents about Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) at a session on Monday in Algoma. A TMDL is a regulatory term in the U.S. Clean Water Act used to determine how much pollutant can be in a body of water and still meet quality standards. The DNR will introduce a study that will cover waterways in Kewaunee, Sheboygan, and Manitowoc Counties. Rep. Joel Kitchens says it is a great way for people to learn more about what is being done and how to get involved.
The informational session will take place from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. inside council chambers at the Algoma City Hall. Four Kewaunee County rivers are currently on the DNR’s impaired waterway list.
