The rest rooms and drinking fountains of the west-bound rest area on I-94 at Johnson CreekThe article points out that the cause for the bacterial infestation is unknown.
Officials say the soonest that could happen is Wednesday afternoon.
Thomas VanBeek of the state Department of Transportation said that the rest rooms are closed at the rest area, but the parking area and vending machines are open.
The rest area is located in Jefferson County between Milwaukee and Madison.
The restrooms closed on Monday afternoon after a well test determined the presence of fecal coliform in the water.
The cynic in me wouldn't be surprised if they did know the cause. After all, there has been reports of massive liquid cow manure polluting our waterways and there is the well-known story of how Herr Environmental was spreading three times the legal amount of human waste, polluting people's personal wells with the effluent.
Considering that State Representative Joel Kleefisch used his influence to try to minimize the consequences for this illegal dumping - not to mention the related cover up in the company's records - I think it would only be appropriate for the rest area to be named after him.
The name change would be very appropriate considering the rest area is full of crap and doesn't serve its purpose to help people.
