Web site tracks pipeline
A new Web site—www.cbcwaterauthority.com—gives Wisconsin residents the chance to learn about the 65-mile pipeline stretching from Manitowoc to six communities in Brown County. The site includes construction progress, maps of the pipeline route, contact information, tentative work schedules, and photos of the work in progress. When completed, the pipeline will deliver 8 to 14 mgd of water from Lake Michigan to the communities of Bellevue, Ledgeview, De Pere, Howard, Lawrence, and Allouez.Directory of non-hazardous waste sites
