Groundwater Protection Program Marks 10-Year Anniversary
Richfield, WI – Heavy pumping, constructing excessive impervious surfaces, and rapid, unchecked development are all elements that if not properly monitored can cause the depletion of a municipality's precious groundwater supply. In light of that fact, in 2004 Richfield took a proactive stance on this issue passing the State's first "Groundwater Protection Ordinance" to safeguard all its residents who rely solely on groundwater. As a result of that ordinance and rigorous water monitoring efforts, the Village is proud to announce that ten (10) years later, even with increased development, average groundwater levels have risen nearly 3 feet overall since 2004.
