It is interesting how the good is presented but yet the bad is hidden. This same facility that has been servicing many areas for 50 years also has a big problem. There is lead in the water that our inmates are to drink. Now told to limit the amount of water. There are signs put up all over the institution with the side effects of lead. Inmates loved ones now expected to purchase bottled water in order to have clean water. How is that fair? Who should be held accountable for this issue?

The state of Wisconsin has a responsibility to keep the environment safe. Everyone should write to the right to life organization and to anyone who will listen. Being a human being the churches have a responsibility to voice concerns. They end up having to advocate for these prisoners. Why have prisons if they kill the imates. The state needs to intervene,this is a EPA issue also. Equal Opportunity advocates should be voicing their concerns also. Lawyers in Wisconsin have a responsibility too to intercede. You are a concern American who has stepped up to a enviromental issue that is effecting a community. Its time to close that facility till the situation can be rectified. As for family member to buy water is unthinkable. It sounds like a scam on the family members. You have rights voice them to the Governor and EPA and Human Rights Groups and churches.
