When Peggy and her husband bought a home on a northern Wisconsin lake, she didn’t know that the lake was polluted—or how much the pollution would harm her health.
“I would never have believed that anything as bad as these lakes even existed in the United States,” said Peggy. “It is like living in a third world country with the cyanobacteria that chokes our lakes and emits toxins, hydrogen sulphide, and ammonia into the air. . . . In 6 short years, I have lost 20% of my lung function.
“We donate to Clean Wisconsin because it is the leader in trying to make a difference for Wisconsin waters. We can’t afford to keep brushing this under the rug. This is a huge problem for the state’s economy and health!”
