“Families in our area needed help.”
15 years ago, Doug and Sherryl Jones purchased their 11-acre property in Spring Green with the hopes of creating a peaceful place for their grandchildren to gather. Unfortunately, the manure from neighboring farmland has polluted the Jones’ oxbow lake and sloughs have made that vision difficult to fulfill.
With the nitrate levels in his water 2 times that of which the EPA considers safe, Doug took action and joined the Midwest Environmental Advocates to protect his community by organizing town meetings, distributing water testing kits, and calling on the EPA for assistance: “Families in our area needed help.”
