160676 01.CommunicationCommunication related to the activities of the Water Quality Task Force.

Minutes note: Chair Bohl gave a 30-minute overview and a PowerPoint presentation. There were 14 members of the public present. Speakers: 1. Dr. Brian - humanity -- industrial activity in Milwaukee has lead to our education problems. The city needs to address matters in a diffferent way as we've been woefully inadequate. The community needs to be engaged. A superfund should be created funded by the rich industrial families to pay for this damage. 2. Terry Wiggins - Interfaith Earth Network - doesn't support seeking state money to change lead pipes nor does she suppport running water for three minutes as that still doesn't guarantee the water will be lead-free and it wastes water. She believes the use of water filters and the timely replacement of filters is the solution. 3. Sylvia Wilds - 1333 S. 11th St. - she had 2 questions: Why does the lead pipe replacement project take so long -- spanning multiple decades; and Is there a correlation between lead and crime and how people make decisions. Meeting adjourned: 10:00 A.M. Linda M. Elmer Staff Assistant
