DNR Impaired Waters List Available for Public Comment
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently released a draft of their list of lakes and rivers that do not meet certain quality standards. This list is updated regularly to reflect new information or changes in water quality status. More information on impaired waters and a copy of the 2014 draft list update is available on the DNR’s website here.
The draft is available for public comment until March 6th. Comments received before then will be forwarded onto the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which will finalize the list. To submit your comments to the DNR, send your email to DNRImpairedWaters@wisconsin.gov or by standard mail to Mr. Aaron Larson, DNR, Water Evaluation Section (WY/3), PO Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707.
