Info on biogas project now on Kewaunee County website
Kewaunee County has launched an informational “State Biogas Project” page on its website.
The page is intended as a service to the public and local elected officials regarding the state of Wisconsin’s proposed Integrated Anaerobic Digester System Program.
On Nov. 17, Gov. Scott Walker and officials from the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, Department of Natural Resources and Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection came to Kewaunee County to announce this initiative, which would ultimately convert animal waste into energy, in hopes of improving manure management practices and groundwater quality.
The purpose of the web page built by Kewaunee County is to keep everyone informed, as previously stated by Kewaunee County Chairman Robert Weidner to the county Board of Supervisors on Dec. 20.
“I think that it’s important that no one board member has knowledge that others don’t have access to,” Weidner said. “There’s nothing about this project that should be secret or should be confined to just a few members of the board.”
Kewaunee County will continue to add to the web page as more official documents become available, including news releases, memos or emails pertaining to the proposal.
To view the page, click on the “State Biogas Project” tab on the left side of the Kewaunee County home page at www.kewauneeco.org.
