DNR solicitation of economic impacts on proposed revisions to chs. NR 700 to 799

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is currently developing revisions to Wis. Admin. Code chs. NR 700-799, Environmental Protection – Investigation and Remediation of Environmental Contamination, and seeks your feedback on the economic impacts of these proposed rule revisions.

The DNR is proposing these rule revisions to attain consistency with statutory revisions made by 2017 Wis. Act 70 and 2015 Wis. Act 204, including revisions relating to contaminated sediments, and to update references and clarify requirements and procedures as needed since the last set of rule revisions became effective in 2013.   

The DNR has developed a draft economic impact analysis to solicit any additional information or advice on the economic effect of the proposed rules. Note that a separate public comment period on the rule itself will be held after the economic impact analysis has been finalized. This announcement is being distributed to businesses, associations, local government units, individuals, and other entities that may be interested in the proposed rules.

Materials for review may be found on the DNR's website at under rule number RR-10-17.

Economic impact comments will be accepted from April 21, 2020 through May 21, 2020, and may be emailed to
