The state of Wisconsin is picking-up the tab for bottled water for some households in La Crosse.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources is working with the Department of Health Services to get drinking water to people who live in the Town of Campbell. Some folks there are already getting bottled water from La Crosse because of high PFAS numbers in their well water. But hundreds of families were just above the state’s threshold, and the city refused to buy their water. The state is stepping-in to provide those families with water at no cost.
