Public Input Opportunities – Publication RR-0126, Guidance for Sediment-Related Continuing Obligations for Environmental Protection, Wis. Stat. § 292.12(5m), and Publication RR-0117, Guidance: When should a site investigation enter surface water?

The Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) Program is now seeking input on two publications: RR-0126, Guidance for Sediment-Related Continuing Obligations for Environmental Protection, Wis. Stat. § 292.12(5m), and RR-0117, Guidance: When should a site investigation enter surface water?

DNR Publication RR-0126 is intended to help property owners understand their obligations under Wis. Stat. § 292.12 regarding continuing obligations that are imposed due to residual contamination remaining on their property.

DNR Publication RR-0117 refers to Wis. Admin. Code ch. NR 716, which requires a site investigation to evaluate known or potential impacts to environmental media (including sediment and surface water) and receptors (e.g., fish, bird, animal and plant life) as well as the potential pathways for migration of contamination.

Both documents can be found at the RR Program’s Public Notices & Guidance web page under the “Program Guidance” tab.

Comments regarding either document may be submitted through October 28, 2021 to Carrie Webb at CarrieA.Webb@wisconsin.gov or to DNRRRGuidance@wisconsin.gov.
