MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers wants to let environmental officials borrow nearly $70 million more over the next two years to address groundwater contamination. The plan calls for an additional $3 million in borrowing authority to fund grants for farmers to build infrastructure to reduce nonpoint water pollution and $65 million in additional borrowing authority to fund grants to local governments to reduce storm water runoff; address contaminated soil; and fund municipal loans for replacing lead pipes.
