Green Fitchburg Past Events

Water Quality Educational Event
May 18, 2023 6:00-7:30pm
Fitchburg Public Library

Join the Resource Conservation Commission and special guests from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Department of Health Services on Thursday, May 18 to learn and talk about water quality. With increased recent coverage of the health impacts of long-lasting "forever chemicals" known by the acronym PFAS (per- and polyfluorinated substances), this is a great time to learn about water quality in general and what we can do to keep ourselves and our local water systems clean and safe. This event will start with overviews on our water systems and water quality, and then open up to general Q&A for attendees to get answers on their questions and concerns regarding the water that sustains us.
