Environmental Loans (EL) Compendium of 2015 revisions to chs. NR 162 & NR 166 Variances

(s. NR 166.22(4), Wis. Adm. Code)

This page provides information about the changes DNR made to the Variances section of the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) code. In the SDWLP code (NR 166), we added a new section under Variances labeled "Granting a Variance." Similar language already existed in NR 162, the CWFP code.

The language instructs DNR to take the following factors into account when determining whether granting a variance is appropriate:

  • good cause;
  • circumstances beyond the control of the municipality;
  • emergencies;
  • natural disasters; and
  • financial hardship.
