This is the Fox River. A beautiful 200 mile water system that unites many prominent communities throughout Northeast Wisconsin. This river has historic importance to us, it is the reason a bustling economy exists here, and it’s nourishing waters have provided a place to call home for many Wisconsinites. Our companion waterway isn’t perfect though, the high concentration of paper mills and other industries along the Lower Fox has historically been the source of much pollution of the river. Public debate about this contamination began as early as 1923, but little was done to improve the river until the federal Clean Water Act was passed in 1972. Much effort has since been put into cleaning the Fox, but problems still exist. In our documentary, Fox2-O, we will work to unite the community around a common cause; to work together to make the Fox River the best it possibly can be. It is our goal to provide a voice to politicians, owners and members of the paper mill industry, economic and business leaders, environmentalists, scientists, and farmers to discuss the challenges we face. How can we work together, to bring life to, and ensure a quality future for our waterway? This documentary firmly stands to unite us together, not to point fingers or dismiss realities.
