23 Wisconsin Watersheds Get Health Checks

Great news for Wisconsin’s water lovers: The DNR, in collaboration with local partners including the UW-Madison Extension, has released plans to improve 23 watersheds across the state. These plans are available for viewing online, and are meant to improve both the health and the condition of the named watersheds. They are part of the recently released 2010 Water Quality Report to Congress and are required under the federal Clean Water Act. The DNR is interested in your feedback, and is also seeking volunteers to help carry out these plans. Check out their website for a map and more information about the plans, or to find out how you can get involved.
