Joint Finance approves TMDL study for local rivers

The Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee on Thursday approved funding for a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study for the rivers of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties and the streams…

The state GOP appears to be milking this legislation more than is warranted and testing to see how much pollution a watershed can sustain always appeared to me, an entirely ass-backward approach to protection of OUR formerly public natural resource.

Sticking this into the budget, aside from being a poison pill to blame anyone who votes against the budget for other reasons as being against “clean water,” which the bill won’t accomplish anyway, even if passed and signed into law, this tactic from our state “leadership,” seemed always nothing  more than kicking the can down the road with more testing, much of which has been done before in various ways.”
