Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PERCHLORATE, WETLANDS: Warner Park lagoon, Madison, Wisconsin
Eco group says study shows Rhythm & Booms hurts Warner Park wetlands

Capital Times (WI)

Newly released reports show that the Rhythm & Booms fireworks display at the Warner Park lagoon is not “benign fun” and it’s time to stop it, says a co-founder of a grass-roots group dedicated  to preserving the city park’s flora and fauna.

'The fireworks of Rhythm & Booms leave significant and persistent chemical contamination, along with significant solid waste, in Warner Park's wetland. While the impacts on the food chain, fish, birds and public health are unknown, no one can now argue that the fireworks are benign fun,' Jim Carrier of Wild Warner wrote Wednesday on an email network serving north-side residents.

"The city of Madison, in partnership with the Madison Fireworks Fund, has significantly polluted Warner Park's wetland for 20 years. It's time to stop," Carrier said.
