Geology Professor Maureen Muldoon, Agricultural Researcher Mark Borchardt, and local officials highlight a League of Women Voters Door County forum this Saturday as they take a deep look at the challenges of groundwater contamination in the area. The two experts are no stranger to the uniqueness of the Door Peninsula after Borchardt and Muldoon collaborated on a study focused on Kewaunee County’s groundwater issues, which showed the correlation between soil depths, the changing seasons, and contamination. Corporation Council Grant Thomas, Assistant County Sanitarian Chris Olson, and County Conservationist Erin Hanson will follow with a presentation of what is already being done in the area and possible improvements that could be made. Susan Kohout from the League of Women Voters Door County says this is an important conversation for residents.
“Protecting Door County’s Groundwater” will take place at the Sturgeon Bay High School commons beginning at 9 a.m.
