SB 58 & AB 64 : Expanding Access to the Well Compensation Grant Program

Bill Description

Every Wisconsinite deserves to know the water coming out of their taps is safe to drink. Nitrate contamination is the most common groundwater contaminant in Wisconsin and can lead to health effects including cancer, birth defects, and even infant death. SB 58 & AB 64 support Wisconsinites facing nitrate contamination by making small but necessary improvements to eligibility requirements under the state’s Well Compensation Grant Program. These changes will allow more people to access funds that protect their well water from the dangers of nitrate contamination.
