Residents Object to Herbicide - - DNR Gives Approval Anyway

Residents along Pewaukee Lake objected to proposed chemical weed-killing - - and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources approved it anyway.

The spraying will affect 137 Pewaukee Lake shoreline properties. The chemical is 2,4-D.

And the DNR wonders why it has fewer and fewer supporters, and why environmentalists and conservationists are calling for an overhaul of the agency's leadership.
