The Land Conservation Department has completed another year of well-testing to map the existing conditions of groundwater quality in Douglas County.

With the testing done, the department will provide results for the groundwater program as well as a general overview of how to keep your drinking water safe.

The online session will take place at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 14. Due to concerns about COVID-19, the session will occur via Zoom.

Kevin Masarik from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Center for Watershed Science and Education will present this year’s results and give an update on groundwater quality in Douglas County. He will also be available to answer questions participants may have about wells and drinking water safety.

If you are interested in attending the Zoom meeting, sign up at or call Cameron at 715-395-7266.
