Getting Sick In Brown County, WI
"In one town in Brown County, 100 wells were polluted by agricultural runoff, sickening residents with chronic diarrhea, stomach illnesses and severe ear infections. Dairies with more than 700 cows, like Mr. Natzke's, must abide by dozens of state regulations and permits. "We follow all the rules," Mr. Natzke says. Nonetheless, neighbors have still become ill."
