As Kewaunee County awaits results from its aquatic life survey of the impaired East Twin River, Land and Water Conservation Committee member Lee Luft is looking forward to a more expansive study being done throughout the region. Included in the current state budget is the designation of a fifth Total Daily Maximum Load study, which will include watersheds in Kewaunee, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan County. The study aims to set pollution limits for the waterways. Luft says the information gathered from the study will be crucial to addressing what needs to be done to protect the area’s water supply.
The study championed by First District Assembly Rep. Joel Kitchens is expected to take place over the course of a few years but will give all stakeholders more information on how to address the area’s water concerns.
