Save the Little Plover River From Getting Sucked Dry
Once prized for native brook trout and popular with anglers, the Little Plover River's flow has decreased to levels that threaten fish populations. Wisconsin is a water-rich state, but groundwater is the main water source for 70% of the population and over 90% of water used for farming and industry.
Wisconsin law leaves streams, lakes, and wetlands unprotected from excessive groundwater pumping. So portions of the Little Plover River are repeatedly sucked dry.
Ask Wisconsin’s Governor and Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources to enforce the Public Rights Flow of the Little Plover River which would limit the pumping of the very groundwater that gives it life. This would help protect communities that rely on healthy Wisconsin waters.
