Manitowoc Farms Flush Feces Into Lake Michigan: The DNR Does Nothing

Activists have for years been raising a stink - - pardon the bad turn of a phrase - - about the knowing cow manure pollution of Lake Michigan that runs daily from super-farming operations north of Milwaukee.

The Journal Sentinel lays out some of the facts here, and among the most galling of all is the admission by Department of Natural Resources regulators that they intend to do nothing with the proof.

Thanks to MMSD, I have pooped in Lake Michigan on many occasions, yet the DNR refuses to act. Shameful.

The difference is that MMSD is spending heavily to try and fix its problems. There's plenty of enforcement, too.
