The Sierra Club released a status paper on CAFO's and water quality in Wisconsin at a release meeting in Menomonie on June 14. We attended the meeting and bring you both the paper and a video of the entire meeting where several concerned citizens testified about the issues of groundwater contamination from CAFO's, the status of some of the CAFO approvals in the state, and the lack of enforcement on the part of the DNR. Speakers included Lindsay Olson, Dunn Co Water Specialist; Rachel Kummer, Farmer; Neil Koch, retired hydrologist and Elizabeth Ward, Conservation Programs Coordinator, John Muir.
