|Subject:||[CPEO-MEF] CLEANUP: Remediation or Public Water at Badger Ammo Plant (WI)|
Press Release Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger May 3, 2011 Army should provide rural residents with better choicesThe Army has just released a report which asks the public to choose between three alternative solutions to groundwater contamination in and around Badger Army Ammunition Plant. A 90-day clock is ticking to choose either a new municipal drinking water system or continued active steps to clean and protect groundwater, wetlands, rivers and streams.
So how do we pick? A public water system, which would serve residents to the south and east of Badger in the rural towns of Prairie du Sac, Sumpter, and Merrimac, will prompt a phased shutdown of active groundwater treatment systems. The other two alternatives are continued cleanup of groundwater using carbon filtration or bioremediation using naturally occurring organisms.
The Army’s preferred choice, having the lowest cost to the military, is a public water supply system. However we live an agricultural community and successful farming relies on clean groundwater. While a municipal water system will provide drinking water for rural homes, local farms and dairies will continue to rely on their own wells to successfully run their operations.
