Checking in with the Milwaukee Riverkeeper on the health of our local waterways

Milwaukee -

One week ago a fuel spill raised major concerns about a feeder creek to the KK River.

As we all make plans to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, it raises familiar concerns about the health and safety of our waterways.

A major player in protecting our watershed is the group called Milwaukee Riverkeeper.

The mission is to protect, improve and advocate for water quality, riparian wildlife habitat, and sound land management in the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic River Watersheds.

Cheryl Nenn joined the CBS 58 News for an update on how their efforts are going.

She say the group sees a future when all people can enjoy health waterways in the Milwaukee River Basin.

Milwaukee Riverkeeper is a licensed member of the Waterkeeper Alliance, an international coalition ensuring clean water and strong communities.

They are a licensed 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, and a charitable licensed organization through the State of Wisconsin.
