    I called the Village Hall this morning and Emily returned my call. The two discharges were storm water and not sewage. No sewer water went into the lake. The Kenosha County Health Department takes care of the testing and they will make the determination. If anyone wishes to talk to them about testing, their number is 262-605-6700.
