Following a public comment period and consideration of the comments received, the 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? are now posted and available online.
The documents can be found here: RR-0126 and RR-0117. Additional documents and guidance from the Remediation and Redevelopment Program may be found using the search tools available on the publications and forms webpage.
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.
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.
