Hapless Kewaunee County Board votes to approve bandaid approach to their gravely serious groundwater contamination

Kewaunee County Board passes resolutions related to water quality.  (Green Bay Press Gazette, 5/22/2019)
One resolution called for support of state Senate Bill 137, which if passed at the state level would authorize the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to award grants of up to $2,500 to eligible private water well owners whose wells test for nitrates at more than 10 parts per million. It also would allow Heath Services to distribute as much as $500,000 to counties that apply to take part in a testing program, as a reimbursement for the costs involved.

What's left unsaid:  concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs)

Kewaunee County might as well register as WIGOP's official punching bag.

Pathetic! Too red to see the light.
