Task Force Calls For Water Pollution Measures

A water pollution task force created by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has released its recommendations to clean up Wisconsin’s water supply.

The 13 bills released Wednesday include the creation of a new water policy office, increased funding for county conservation positions, and grants for farmers who put projects into place to reduce nitrate pollution. Vos estimates the total cost of implementing those bills at about 10 million dollars. The task force has been working on the recommendations for about a year.
