walkerMADISON - One thing we like to do here at the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is to amplify the work of other fine nonprofits and enterprising reporters.

This week offered us three opportunities to do just that.

When the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation came out with a report showing that the enforcement of DNR regulations was at a 30-year low, we showed all the money that polluters have given to Walker & Company:

(1) Walker has $42 million reasons to reduce pollution enforcement

water_petitionGREEN BAY - A recent study found that 34 percent of tested groundwater wells in Kewaunee County in northeastern Wisconsin contained water that was unsafe to drink. That's one in every three wells.

I've heard from many Wisconsin residents about their concerns about clean water. Just yesterday, I was in Adams at a roundtable to learn more about what the community is doing to tackle this challenge, and I was so impressed with the stakeholders from all sides of the discussion coming together to address clean water issues.

Nobody should have to worry about whether or not they have access to safe, potable water -- this is unacceptable. We should all benefit from the health of Wisconsin's rivers, lakes, streams, and farmland. And, right now, it's so important we join our voices to call attention to this important issue.

Will you sign my petition calling for safe and clean drinking water for every Wisconsinite? Add your name here.

Groundwater can be contaminated by sewage, septic waste, and certain agricultural operations like Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. As community members and neighbors, we need to support efforts from county officials, local officials, and businesses to come together to keep our water safe and clean. Wisconsinites deserve a federal government that wants to partner with county and local officials, and together, they must urge state officials to act fairly and take the issue of clean water seriously.
