Viroqua to take lead in karst geology study Vernon County Broadcaster (Wisconsin) January 07, 2009 by Tim Hundt . The city of Viroqua will act as the administrator for an area groundwater study slated to begin this summer.
The study will attempt to map local karst geology between Viroqua and Westby. The idea for the study grew out of discussions during the county comprehensive planning process regarding land use planning. The Viroqua City Council approved serving as the administrator for the study by a unanimous vote, Tuesday, Dec. 30., 2008.
Viroqua City Administrator Jeff Gohlke said a group of local residents is in the process of applying for a Nuzum grant to help pay for the study that will be conducted mostly with volunteer labor. Gohlke said the grant money, if obtained, would be used to offset some minor costs for things like mileage and printing.
