Two public hearing scheduled for next week could have implications for manure handling and water quality in the region. At UW-Green Bay next Friday at 1 p.m., the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is hosting their hearing on possible changes to manure spreading rules in areas like Door and Kewaunee County that have karst topography. Kewaunee County Board member Lee Luft says he hopes the recommendations he helped make as a member of the DNR-Kewaunee County Groundwater Collaboration Workgroups are taken seriously.
Earlier in the day in Madison, Wisconsin’s Public Service Commission will discuss the multi-million dollar manure digester project introduced in Kewaunee County over a year. Luft says he and other Kewaunee County board members have been frustrated with the process.
Both topics appear on the agenda for the Kewaunee County Land and Water Committee meeting slated to take place on Tuesday.
