Year of Water Declared for 2003

Year of Water Declared for 2003

During a plenary speech at the recent “Waters of Wisconsin” Forum (October 21-22) in Madison, DNR Secretary Darrell Bazzell read a statement from Governor Scott McCallum proclaiming 2003 to be “Year of Water” in which the Governor calls on agencies, organizations, and citizens to celebrate and protect our water resources. Many of the state’s environmental and conservation organizations are planning countless special events next year to acknowledge this important focus on water. The declaration came just days after the 30th anniversary of the federal Clean Water Act. The Forum was attended by over 700 people representing a huge diversity of water use, conservation, and policy entities. Follow-up to the event includes the preparation of a water policy analysis and establishing recommendations for a sustainable future for Wisconsin’s surface and ground waters.
