Researching Well Contamination in Southeastern Wisconsin

In 2014, Clean Wisconsin released a study that found more than one in five wells across Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties are contaminated with molybdenum at levels above the state health advisory level. Families and schools in the area are being forced to buy bottled water or install expensive purification systems to avoid the toxic metal, which is found in coal ash.

In response to the findings, Clean Wisconsin has pressured the EPA and the Department of Natural Resources to better regulate the material to protect Wisconsin families.
