Partnership to restore tributary in Foxconn development
The American Transmission Company (ATC) is working with Root-Pike Watershed Initiative Network (WIN) to help restore a portion of the Lamparek Ditch, a critical tributary of the impaired north branch of the Pike River in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin.
