TOWN OF LINCOLN – People in one Kewaunee County community say ongoing well contamination problems have gotten worse. As the weather warms up, residents in the town of Lincoln are reporting more issues with polluted water.
The thin soil and fractured bedrock make the area more susceptible to runoff problems.
“Nice water sure. Looks nice, but looks can be deceiving,” said resident Mick Sagrillo.
Sagrillo, who’s lived in Lincoln for 30 plus years, says tests show what you can’t see.
“Nitrates and bacteria,” Sagrillo said.
He’s been forced to buy bottled water for more than a decade because of a contaminated well.
