DNR To Host Virtual Public Meeting On Special Well Casing Depth Area & TCE Contamination Oct. 27
MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021, from 6-7:30 p.m. to provide information and answer questions regarding the special well casing depth area (SWCDA) within the towns of Hudson and Warren in St. Croix County.
This online event is the first public input opportunity hosted by the DNR to share information and answer questions about the SWCDA for area residents.
Participants are strongly encouraged to submit questions in advance via email at DNRStCroixSWCDA@wisconsin.gov.
The SWCDA is an area within the towns of Hudson and Warren where comingled plumes of contamination from three nearby sites caused drinking water wells to become contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE). The comingled groundwater plume encompasses approximately six square miles (4,000 acres). Approximately 600 private drinking water wells are located within this area.
Addressing groundwater contamination is part of Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide initiative to ensure Wisconsinites have access to clean, safe, drinking water.
Additional information on the SWCDA is available on the Wisconsin DNR website.
