DNR Received Public Comments On Draft Economic Impact Analysis Regarding Nitrate Pollution In Groundwater
MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is currently updating the NR 151, Wis. Adm. Code regarding nitrate pollution in groundwater.
The rule amendment proposes to establish agricultural nonpoint source performance standards targeted to abate nitrate pollution in areas of the state which are susceptible to groundwater contamination such that compliance with the nitrate standard can be achieved.
The DNR will review the public comments and consider revisions to the EIA as needed. The next opportunity for public input on this rule will occur this summer when public hearings will be held and another public comment period will open to receive comments on the draft rule.
A full list of the proposed permanent administrative rules currently being developed by the DNR, or which have been adopted by the Natural Resources Board (NRB) and are pending publication, are available here. Scroll down to the WT-Watershed Management section for all related materials.
