Water Warriors Recognized

The Water Warriors Volunteer Water Monitoring Team was honored during this week’s Fond du Lac County Board meeting. The board passed a resolution commending the team on its 10-year effort to ensure good water quality. State Senator Rick Gudex also presented members of the team with a joint resolution from the state legislature that also honored their work. He says the women on the team are the epitome of what volunteerism is all about. Gudex says he knows first hand how hard those volunteers work. He says he and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt went along with the team one day as they went through their water monitoring efforts. Team member Laura DeGolier says the monitor five area water bodies. She says it takes about 10 minutes per river and they monitor two branches of the Rock River, two branches of the Fond du Lac River and Parsons Creek, which flows into the east branch of the Fond du Lac River.
