Bringing Back the Bay: Keeping Our Water Clean

Local News

On this damp and chilly, day you are probably not thinking about fun out on the water.
But one group is–they are in town today to keep our natural resources are healthy all year round. 

It’s part of Bringing Back the Bay.

This is the fifth year the ‘Clean Bay Backers’ have led elected leaders on a tour focused on storm water management.
Sediment, phosphorous, and everything else that comes with runoff, ultimately affects recreational use of the Bay of Green Bay and Fox River.

We can help by just knowing what we’re doing on our property.

“Whether it’s mowing your lawn–don’t put your grass clippings on the road,” said Nick Vande Hey, an engineer at McMahon Associates. “Don’t dump used oil down a storm sewer inlet because those pipes carry that water directly to the river, and not every part of a community has a treatment device such as a pond.”
