Subject: [CPEO-MEF] WATER: Badger Ammo Plant (WI) proposes municipal supply

The clean-up efforts around the former Badger Ammunition Plant outside Baraboo are winding down, but concerns about water contamination from the facility still persist among residents of the area. The U.S. Army is hoping to address those concerns with a proposed municipal water district serving the region.

The Army does routine testing of private wells in the area surrounding the plant. While they haven't found dangerous signs of contamination, plant spokeswoman Joan Kenney says some residents remain worried about the long term safety of water supplies.
