Evers Wants Nearly $70M in Bonding to Address Water Quality

Ken Notes: NUMBER 6: The county should be proactive rather than reactive by requiring CAFO`s digest waste and heat/dry the effluent. Crave Farms has a model that works. If we allow large herds to replace family farms we are inviting watershed and well problems without forward thinking solutions. Share this comment with your county rep. or exec. and suggest someone take charge.

Re the lead pipes, many communities have worked this into their long range planning and EVERY community should now do so. It took us 100 years to get here so an overnight fix will not work. Also in the meantime DO NOT CHANGE your water treatment systems at all. It is these changes that expose the lead in the system.

Your Questions About Plastic Waste, Answered

Ken Notes: This is a great article and identifies many of the problems we face. One major issue is that China is no longer taking our waste plastic which is a huge issue. We may need to develop plants to process the recycled plastic into pellets and ship that to China (this is happening with paper now) but these plants produce co2 and other pollutants and need to run on very thin margins.

Solar proposal splits farmers, clean energy fans
