The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee will once again weigh in on issues aimed at manure handling in the area. According to one draft ordinance, haulers would be subject to certification and be required to install monitoring devices to make sure the manure is being safely and correctly spread in the right areas. Land and Water Conservation Committee Chairperson John Pagel says about 80 percent of the manure going onto fields are already going through this process.
The committee, which meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday inside the 4-H Room in Luxemburg, will also discuss updates regarding the East Twin River resolution and potential Kewaunee County digester project. Resolutions supporting the NR-151 rules outlining new manure spreading limits for areas with karst geology and Total Maximum Daily Load studies will also be up for a vote.
