The science of water. Through its Aquatic Monitoring Program (AMP), NEW

Water joined forces with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources,

and the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Zilber School of Public Health

on a three-year study to determine levels of toxins (cyanotoxins) produced by

cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, in the bay of Green Bay. Launched in 2016,

the study continued in 2017, with preliminary data showing elevated levels of

cyanotoxins in the water. AMP has been continuously monitoring area waters

for more than 30 years, and its extensive database is used by water scientists

in Northeast Wisconsin, the Great Lakes region, and throughout the United

States. NEW Water is proud to serve as a trusted source of water information for

our community.
