Trade Lake Township CAFO
Request for an Environmental Impact Study
The proposed Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation in Trade Lake Township will likely create health hazards for the population by damaging air and water quality. Other areas with CAFOs have experienced similar outcomes. Many people feel that this area is inappropriate for CAFOs due to extensive wetlands, streams, and rivers that feed the protected St. Croix River. Plus, Trade Lake has only one aquifer and a shallow ground water table. Concerned Citizens want the State of Wisconsin to perform an Environmental Impact Study to determine whether or not Trade Lake Township is the proper location for a CAFO that proposes to spread 9 million gallons of liquid hog manure across 1000+ acres of watershed.
