Protect Wisconsin's Lakes
No More Mining
Wisconsin has some of the most beautiful lakes and streams in the country, and our waterways are essential to our ecosystems and our economy. But our waterways are threatened by runoff pollution from farms, construction sites, and mines.
In 2011, when Governor Walker proposed rolling back protections on our lakes, we fought back and stopped the rollbacks by getting thousands of petition signatures asking legislators to protect our lakes. But now there’s a new threat to our water: Governor Walker is proposing a bill to allow special interests from Virginia to mine for iron in Northern Wisconsin. The mine could cause massive amounts of waste to be dumped in our waterways and removes all accountability requirements on mining companies.
We're making sure state legislators stand up for our water by stopping mining in Northern Wisconsin. We're also building support for the lakes to guard against any more rollbacks to important protections.
