Troubles Run Deep for Wisconsin Waters
I have a confession to make. For part of my life, I took it for granted that there would always be plenty of clean and safe water to meet the needs of Wisconsin residents into the foreseeable future. After all, there are regulations in place to reduce pollution from sources like industries, municipalities, agricultural and property owners. Communities, conservation organizations and people from across the state are implementing plans to reduce the use of and conserve water.

Regardless of your political, social or economic status, Wisconsinites are all impacted when an opened water faucet produces little or unsafe water. The fight to protect water quality by reducing nutrient runoff (especially phosphorus) from streets, water treatment plants and farms is one of Wisconsin’s most challenging environmental issues.

The Wisconsin DNR cites that ¼ of more than 700 bodies of water which fail to meet water quality standards do so because of high levels of phosphorus. The Department of Health Services cites 26 cases of algae-related illnesses between 2009 and 2011 in Dunn County, which originated from Tainter Lake. Blue-green algae has been found in Lake Winnebago, which supplies drinking water to Appleton, Neenah, Menasha and Oshkosh.
