DRIVE SAFE OR GET PULLER OVER

Date: August 17, 2022 For more information contact: Chief Kenneth Grams or Senior Officer Jeffrey Stankowski The Mosinee Police Department to participate in Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign August 17 through Labor Day The Mosinee Police Department is joining law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin and the nation during the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign from Wednesday, August 17 through Labor Day. Officers will work together during this time to take impaired drivers off the roads and keep everyone safe as the summer travel season wraps up. “Our goal is to keep our roads safe from the dangers of impaired driving. Deaths and injuries due to impaired driving are preventable. We want to make sure all travelers reach their destinations safely,” Chief Kenneth Grams said. Someone is killed in an impaired driving crash every two hours in Wisconsin. Last year in Wisconsin, there were 6,368 alcohol-related crashes, including 166 deaths. Alcohol contributed to more than a quarter of all traffic fatalities. Drug-impaired drivers are also putting people in danger on the roads. A driver’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is compromised by drugs, including prescription and over-the-counter medications. Last year, there were 2,094 drug-related crashes that caused 74 deaths. Wisconsin law enforcement officers have special training to combat impaired driving: • 6,382 police officers trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement to help detect and remove impaired drivers from the roads • 365 highly trained Drug Recognition Experts - among the most in the nation • 25 multi-jurisdictional high-visibility enforcement task forces operating throughout the year, across the state “Drunk driving is never acceptable, especially when there are so many safe alternatives to get home,” Chief Grams said. “We need commitment from our community members that they’ll keep the streets free of impaired drivers so that everyone can have a safe summer and Labor Day holiday.” Everyone should plan ahead for safe travel: • If you plan to celebrate, identify a sober designated driver, or find a safe alternative way home. Never allow someone who is impaired to get behind the wheel. • Protect yourself and your passengers every time you travel. Buckle up, phone down. Watch your speed and eliminate distractions. • If you suspect a driver is impaired, call 911. Provide as much detail as possible on the driver, vehicle, and location. • Download the free Drive Sober mobile app from the WisDOT website. The app includes a “find a ride” feature to help locate mass transit and taxi services. • Some bars and restaurants have programs to provide patrons a safe ride home.


PFAS Detections in City of Mosinee East Drinking Water System

The City of Mosinee Water Utility has conducted two rounds of sampling for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) from our drinking water system that serves the area east of the Wisconsin River. This notice is to inform you of the results and the operational changes the City has made to protect your health. The first round of sample results showed levels of PFAS above the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ (DHS) health advisory levels in one of our two operating wells. As a result, the City collected a second round of samples to confirm the PFAS levels. The City also made changes to the operations of our East Drinking Water System in an attempt to reduce PFAS to below the healthy advisory levels by running both of our wells at the same time and collecting a sample of the water from where these wells enter our water system. The results of the second round of samples confirm that the levels in one of the two operating wells is high, but that the operational changes resulted in PFAS levels below the health advisory levels in the drinking water that the City provides. The City of Mosinee will continue operating our drinking water system by running the two wells together and will routinely collect samples to verify that this plan consistently results in levels of PFAS in the municipal drinking water that remain below DHS’s health advisory levels. If future results show levels have risen above these levels, you will be notified within 30 days. A full list of the sampling results from May 4 and June 6, 2022, including the individual PFAS compounds, the reported concentrations and DHS’ recommended standards, can be found on the City’s website at www.mosinee.wi.us. We will continue to update our website following each future sampling event. The City of Mosinee would like to emphasize that the Water Utility is not in violation of any current federal or state drinking water regulations.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Mosinee City Administrator Jeff Gates at 715.693.2275 or at cityadmn@mosinee.wi.us.
