WDPC meeting next Tuesday 19 June 6:30pm at GrandStay Hotel in Mt Horeb. Please join us!
ATC IS FEEDING US A LINE!
An unnecessary transmission line threatens our unique landscape, as well as our environment and local economy. Western Dane Preservation Campaign is a local, grassroots group which is fighting to retain our precious resources. This concert is a perfect way to help fund the organization’s work, while enjoying a great evening of entertainment.
Driftless Defenders will hold a Public Information Meeting about the proposed Cardinal-Hickory Creek Transmission Line on Friday, June 8, 7 p.m., Dodger Bowl, 321 King Street, Dodgeville. Speaker will be Howard Learner, Executive Director of Environmental Law and Policy Center, the midwest’s premier environmental legal advocacy organization that has been hired by Driftless Area Land Conservancy to provide legal counsel. He will update us about upcoming proceedings before the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (WPSC) and Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and advise us how we can help. Come with your questions since ample time will be allowed for Q&A. More information at DriftlessDefenders.com.
UPCOMING MEETING OF WESTERN DANE PRESERVATION CAMPAIGN May 15 2018 @ 6:30PM
GrandStay® Hotel & Suites
175 Lillehammer Lane, Mount Horeb
Join WDPC to Stop the CHC Line and Preserve Western Dane County! WDPC is a non-profit group formed by area citizens to stop construction of the un-needed and destructive high-voltage Cardinal-Hickory Creek transmission line that American Transmission Co. proposes to run from Middleton, WI to Dubuque, Iowa. WDPC is working to stop the CHC line by proving: lack of need, its direct environmental hazards, and its detrimental economic impact to our communities. The for-profit utility companies who propose this line, ATC, ITC, and Dairyland Power, are guaranteed more than 10% profit on their investment! They make money by putting poles in the ground. The 10% profit is paid by us! Rate payers will see an increase on their utility bills. We will pay for this un-needed line, and receive little or no benefit from it.
