Threats and Rescue Strategies for Wisconsin's Water
The public is invited to join us for our April issues forum on problems with Wisconsin’s water featuring scientist and LWV activist Gretchen Sabel. Ms. Sabel chairs the LWV Upper Mississippi River Region Inter-League Organization (UMRRILO), and is the President of LWV ABC (Anoka, Blaine, and Coon Rapids MN). She retired from the State of Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) after 36 years of environmental protection work, specializing in water pollution and septic systems.
Our speaker will talk about some well-known threats to Wisconsin's water—concentrated agricultural feeding operations (CAFOs), high-capacity wells, contamination, flooding, Foxconn, climate change, and what next? She has not only scientific credentials, but also experience with legislation, state regulation, and community education and organizing. You can read more about Sabel’s work in the MPCA SSTS Bulletin.
Video and audio recordings to come.
