Conservation Public Health Workgroup

County Land & Water Conservation and Public Health departments have been working together to better understand the extent of impacted drinking water in their counties. WI Land+Water and the Wisconsin Association for Local Health Departments and Boards (WALHDAB) recognized the success of these local partnerships and launched a workgroup to help identify ways to foster these relationships.
