Wautoma Millpond Task Force happy with control burn results

To the Editor:

For those of you who may have missed it, the Wautoma District Fire Department conducted a control burn of the Wautoma Millpond Basin, required by the Wisconsin DNR, on Thursday, March 12.

This procedure was a textbook operation, with air temperature, wind, and surface moisture all in the correct range, and the results could not have been better. We now are in position to begin the refill when soil temperatures reach the required range.
