Published by Central Office August 1, 2017

Contact(s): Laurie Ross, board liaison, 608-267-7420; Jim Dick, DNR spokesperson, 608-267-2773

MADISON - A request for adoption of a series of rules related to the Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System and information items on Great Lakes commercial fishing, Lake Michigan integrated fisheries plan and an update on the progress of the Deer Management Assistance Program are among the items the state Natural Resources Board will address when it meets August 9 in Milwaukee.

On Tuesday, August 8, the board will tour and/or receive presentations at locations around the Milwaukee area beginning at 10:45 a.m. beginning at the Road Air Monitoring Station, near College Avenue. The regular business meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 9, in the Hilton Hotel Downtown, 509 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee.

The WPDES rules package addresses the last 10 of 75 issues the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency outlined in a July 2011 letter to the department regarding potential inconsistencies between state and federal regulations that govern the WPDES program. The rule changes are intended to ensure state rules are consistent with federal regulations.

The complete August board agenda is available by searching the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov for keyword "NRB" and clicking on the button for "view agendas."

The public must pre-register with Laurie Ross, board liaison, to attend the Tuesday tours and/or to testify at the board meeting. The deadline to register to attend the tours, testify, or submit written comments is 11 a.m. on Friday, August 4, 2017. Registration information is available on the agenda on the DNR website.
