CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Community members in Chippewa Falls learned more about the quality of their groundwater Monday night.
Chippewa County performed a study of more than 700 private water wells in the county to determine water quality.
The first results from the study were released at the Chippewa Falls Middle School during a public hearing.
Groundwater specialists say the water fairs quite well.
“Nothing alarming”, says Kevin Masarik with UW Extension out of UW-Stevens Point. “Everything we found are typical problems that you might have for a kind of rural residential well-owner things like nitrate was probably the most common issue we found. “
