Wisconsin groups announce Clean Water Initiative priorities

SHARE NOW

Farmers and environmental groups have teamed up to promote clean water funding in the Wisconsin state budget.  Karen Gefvert is with the Dairy Business Association and says they came together with The Nature Conservancy, Wisconsin Land and Water, and Clean Wisconsin to support specific state programs. “They’re not groups that have traditionally worked together but we saw that as a missed opportunity and in really bringing these groups together and talking about what our future goals were, we did find some ways in which we could align.”

Gefvert tells Brownfield a new proposal the Clean Water Initiative would like to have funded is for residential well testing.
