Wisconsin is one of a dozen states getting federal money to control farm runoff and other pollution. The 60-million dollars will be used to control the pollution that contributes to a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. The E-P-A says the money comes from President Biden’s infrastructure law signed last November. The money will be distributed over the next five years to states that have waterways through flow into the Mississippi River. The new program was announced late last week. It is aimed at reducing the amount of phosphorus and nitrogen that wind up in the river and cause a dead zone of more than 53-hundred square miles.
