State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Residents statewide are encouraged by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to submit data they have personally collected about Wisconsin waterways that will be used to identify waters failing to meet water quality standards.
Information can be submitted now through December 31, 2010 that will help the DNR compile a list of the state’s impaired waters as part of the biennial water quality report required by Congress. The DNR reports about 1,000 lake volunteers and another 2,000 stream volunteers are actively involved in water monitoring programs.
The goal is to help state officials pinpoint lakes and rivers in need of clean-up and allocate scarce resources to those areas.
