This video I did was one of the main things that caused a lot of awareness on what was going on with the Dam and the Beaver Dam River. I didn't know the reach that it would have when I filmed it but my wife and I have both been featured on Madison and Milwaukee news stations now and I was able to sit down and talk with the Mayor of Beaver Dam.  There are a lot of people we can blame for the fish kill this year and we can get angry at the DNR or the City of Beaver Dam or we can get angry at the construction crews on Cooper Street and I think we are all justified in our anger.  However, the one thing we can do to make sure this doesn't happen again and that the river stays clean and our fish stay healthy is to use this horrible event for awareness and to move forward with positive plans.  So far we are putting together a cleaning crew made up of BD citizens to clean the Dam, river, and parks along the lake, we are also working on a fundraising project to re-stock Beaver Dam Lake, we are also looking into ways to dredge out some of the silt in the river to create larger areas for the fish.  If yu have ideas on how you could help please message me.

My last comment, and then, as someone suggested I will STFU.  The problem with the new, smaller, kinder, gentler, DNR, headed by Kathy Stepp, is the bend-over backward emphasis on negotiation, reconciliation,  and education, with no fines or convictions, whenever a situation like this comes up.

If a fine or penalty is never assessed, and no one is ever held accountable, what is to prevent situations like this from occurring anytime a culvert or bridge on the BD river needs maintenance.  Oops, sorry, too bad, but it had to be done.

My real name,

Kevin Kuzdas

Manitou....I couldn't agree more. Somebody, probably a couple of somebody's should be fired for what happened here.   And I agree big time that if no one is held accountable, that itself is a whole other issue that needs attention.

Love your STFU comment, and I deserved it, but somebody in Beaver Dam should be fired or fined, and city taxpayers should have to pay for restocking/replacing the fish killed.

What a stupid decision.  The bonehead who ordered the dam shut on the hottest day of the year should be fined $10,000 to restock/replace the fish.
