Pollution Potion

The Sheboygan River AOC sits at the crossroad of three watersheds including itself, the Mullet River and the Onion River. This means that decades of agricultural and industrial pollution from three cities, eleven villages and seven towns gather in the Sheboygan River AOC making it a virtual cauldron bubbling with a disgusting stew of dangerous chemicals. The toxic recipe has created nuisance algal blooms, contaminated sediments and made the fish inedible. This AOC empties into Lake Michigan threatening the ecology of the Lake as well.
