On Thursday, January 14, 2016, the Algoma School Board hosted a dedication at the Algoma High School of a water kiosk, the first site in the county to offer a continuous supply of clean water to residents whose wells are contaminated.
Superintendent of schools and Kewaunee County groundwater task force member Nick Cochart worked with Stonehouse Water Technolgies of Milwaukee to provide a kiosk of clean water outside the high school. The school board unanimously approved the water kiosk late last year, according to Barb Rodgers, Algoma School Board president.
Stonehouse Water Technolgies donated the kiosk and residents who want access to the water can register with the school district at (920) 487-7001. They are given jugs donated by the town of Lincoln that have labels donated by WS Packaging of Algoma.
The dedication of the kiosk was featured in the Kewaunee County Star-News and the article can be accessed here.
