The Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) Program is now seeking input on the publication Local Government Environmental Liability Exemptions and Responsibilities in Wisconsin (RR-055).
The purpose of this guidance is to provide basic information about Wisconsin’s local government unit environmental liability exemption (LGU exemption). The method of property acquisition used by an LGU determines if the exemption is acquired or applicable. DNR brownfields staff can help LGUs understand the exemption before taking title to a contaminated property and provide liability clarification letters.
The document can be found at the RR Program’s Public Notices & Guidance webpage under the “Program Guidance” tab. Comments may be submitted through June 7, 2023, to Michael Prager at Michael.Prager@wisconsin.gov or DNRRRGuidance@wisconsin.gov.
