An open letter to the DNR

To the Editor:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on water quality management goals for Wisconsin. Yes, please do continue with a science-based approach. I understand that water in southern Wisconsin is already threatened or ruined. But please do not forget that we have precious pure water resources in the north, especially Oneida and Vilas counties. Our water is not ruined yet, though it is threatened by heedless business interests.

Thank you for monitoring the effect of our warming lakes on the ecosystems and fish. And for keeping track of the "two story" lakes that might still support walleye.

Please remember that you can protect pure clean water and related ecosystems before they are contaminated. You don't have to wait to monitor them after they are poisoned. Please use your authority and your mandate to serve the public trust with which you are invested: Save this clean water at any cost. Not all resources should be exploited; some, including water should be protected. Please don't give up.

Stephanie Burrell
