• Letter of Support for Ho-Chunk Nation Land Claim

    Ho-Chunk Nation

    In 1988, the Ho-Chunk Nation, a federally recognized Indian Tribe indigenous of Wisconsin, filed a claim for excess property at the Badger Army Ammunition Plant, an area within their aboriginal territory.  The Ho-Chunk Nation’s plans for the land, which are strongly supported by the surrounding community, include historic and cultural resource protection, natural resource enhancement, education, employment and economic development.  But last year, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs refused to transfer the land from the U.S. Army to the Ho-Chunk, claiming it could not afford to conduct an environmental assessment.

    Rosemere Neighborhood Association, along with over 50 community, environmental and citizens’ groups signed a letter in support of the Ho-Chunk Nation’s claim for this land containing significant historical, cultural and sacred resources to the Ho-Chunk people.

  • OPB Announces Results of Its EarthFix Poll: NW Residents Rank Stormwater as Greatest Source of Water Pollution

    OPB EarthfixOPB has published the results of their environmental news segment, EarthFix, water pollution survey.

    Results show respondents ranked stormwater runoff as the greatest source of water pollution.

    From OPB:

    A new poll by Earthfix suggests growing awareness in the Northwest of some of the problems associated with nonpoint source pollution- the diffuse chemicals, bacteria, and sediment carried by rainfall and snowmelt moving downstream through a watershed.

    Urban stormwater runoff beat out a number of other water pollution sources as a top concern in a poll commissioned by EarthFix and conducted by Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall (DHM Research).

    The poll listed a number of sources of water pollution: industrial waste, agricultural chemicals, and sewage, among others.

    When asked what the most significant source of water pollution was in their state, 25 percent of people in the Northwest chose the polluted runoff from roads and paved surfaces.
